I was sadly mistaken, assuming that the summer wildfires in California had been under control.
The Camp Fire is now the most destructive fire in the state’s history. 23 people have died with 100 more still reported missing. The fire has destroyed nearly 6,500 structures.
Further south, the Woolsey Fire has scorched 70,000 acres (130 sq mi), and forced 250,000 people to evacuate in the Malibu area.
