September 2020 Western United States wildfires

In 2020, the Western United States experienced a series of major wildfires. In August, severe thunderstorms lit numerous wildfires across California, Oregon, and Washington, followed in early September by additional ignitions across the West Coast. Fanned by strong, gusty winds, many of the fires exploded and coalesced to record-breaking megafires, burned more than 4.6 million acres (1.9 million hectares) of land, razed thousands of buildings, and killed at least 35 people, with scores more still missing.

Unprecedented': the US west's wildfire catastrophe explained

The climate crisis and fire suppression underlie the disaster. Addressing it means altering society’s relationship to the land. The historic wildfires that have seized the west are delivering a dire message: the climate crisis, climate change and decades of bad environmental policies have unleashed deadly consequences.

Will global warming produce more frequent and more intense wildfires?

There isn’t a direct relationship between climate change and fire, but researchers have found strong correlations between warm summer temperatures and large fire years, so there is general consensus that fire occurrence will increase with climate change.

A wildfire, wildland fire or rural fire is an unplanned, unwanted, uncontrolled fire in an area of combustible vegetation starting in rural areas. Depending on the type of vegetation present, a wildfire can also be classified more specifically as a forest fire, brush fire, bushfire (in Australia), desert fire, grass fire, hill fire, peat fire, prairie fire, vegetation fire, or veld fire. Many organizations consider wildfire to mean an unplanned and unwanted fire, while wildland-fire is a broader term that includes prescribed fire as well as wildland fire use (WFU; these are also called monitored response fires).

Forest fire, uncontrolled fire occurring in vegetation more than 6 feet (1.8 m) in height. These fires often reach the proportions of a major conflagration and are sometimes begun by combustion and heat from surface and ground fires. A big forest fire may crown—that is, spread rapidly through the topmost branches of the trees before involving undergrowth or the forest floor. As a result, violent blowups are common in forest fires, and they may assume the characteristics of a firestorm. Check also wildland fire.
