Smoke covered almost the entire west coast of the United States. 11 people were killed. The total area of the fire was 930 thousand hectares. This is a record figure in the entire history of observations in California.

The largest fires are located near San Francisco. Citizens post on their social networks photos of the amazing color of the sky above the city, colored by fires.

“The most striking and worrying about the current record is how early it was set - September and October are the most dangerous months for wildfires in California”, - the National Inter-Agency Fire Fighting Center reported.

Let us recall that fires engulfed the state in August due to a sharp rise in air temperature. Experts attribute this heat to the effect of global warming. By the end of the last summer month, the area of fires exceeded the territory of New York by six times.
