If you’ve kept up with the news, there’s no doubt you’ve heard of the fires in California. Nearly every year, fires blaze through California, so it’s no surprise. California has been in a drought since 2012 and it seems every year to worsen. They are constantly hit with insane fires that destroy countless homes and thousands of acres of land.

The most recent fire, has been brutal. About 115,000 acres of land have burned and the death toll has risen to 17. That’s scary.

California is dry. Even though the drought might be reaching the end of its course, the state is still dry. Not to mention, it has many trees and other foliage. So once a little fire hits, it spreads very rapidly.

Hopefully, the scientists are correct and the state comes out of its drought soon.
