Los Angeles Times: 2020 California Fires are the Worst Ever. Again.
Blazing with increasing intensity and size each year, California fires have burned a total of 10.8 million acres (and counting) in the past decade. About 3 million of those acres were burnt in 2020 alone. Fire season will most likely continue into the rest of autumn as new fires tend to come along with the Santa Ana and Diablo winds. In the years to come, fires will only get worse; California gets hotter and hotter each year and continues to suffer from a drought. Climate change has brought prime fire conditions suggesting that longer and more fire seasons are bound to become the new norm.
