More than a dozen wildfires were raging across California Monday forcing thousands of residents of the most populous U.S. state to flee their homes.More than 1,200 fire personnel were battling the Alamo blaze, Cal Fire said, adding that hot and dry conditions were expected to continue for the next several days and the inferno has been only 15 percent contained so far.The California fires have forced the evacuation of around 8,000 people while another 10,000 have fled their homes in British Columbia, Canada's westernmost province, where 200 blazes of varying degrees of intensity have been reported.Another blaze, the Wall fire in northern Butte County, has burned some 23 square kilometers and has been 35 percent contained as of Monday morning, according to Cal Fire.
