2018 California wildfires

Aug 9, 2018 California is really on fire.

From http://www.fire.ca.gov/general/firemaps.

From (CNN) called the Holy Fire: About 20,000 residents are under mandatory evacuation orders after a Southern California fire -- which authorities say was set intentionally -- spread this week. The Holy Fire started Monday in the Cleveland National Forest and has so far destroyed 12 structures, according to fire authorities. A man has been arrested in connection with the fire that is wreaking havoc near the border between Orange and Riverside counties, which are among the most populous counties in California. The blaze had burned more than 9,600 acres as of Thursday morning, an almost 50% increase from the report the night before. It remains only 5% contained, according to the national forest's Twitter feed. Schools have been closed in Menifee, Perris and Lake Elsinore.

From CNBC: Night-flying by fire agencies in California gains interest as state's wildfire threat grows. The largest wildfire in California history serves as a reminder that the state is in the grip of a dangerous trend of increasingly larger and faster-moving blazes that may require new methods and strategies to fight in the coming years.
