When it comes to California wildfires, last weekend, a fire burning in California's Sierra National Forest exploded in size, trapping hundreds of campers. Fire officials said they had never seen a fire move so fast in forestland, 24 kilometers in a day.

On Wednesday, a wildfire in Plumas National Forest northeast of San Francisco spread 40 kilometers in a day and devoured an estimated 1,036 square kilometers. California already has seen a record 10,100 square kilometers burn.
