One scary map

Most of these fires are not huge, but two are of serious consequence. The Ferguson fire has closed Yosemite for almost a week. That's kind of like closing Harrod's in the middle of Xmas season.  The other serious blaze is the Carr fire. It is much bigger than Ferguson and is on the edge of Redding, a town of almost a hundred thousand people.  Historically the worst month of fire season is October.
