Large wildfires are often overwhelmingly destructive...and even being a few towns over from one can be disastrous. The fires raging in California right now have destroyed hundreds of structures. Over 23,000 people have been evacuated from their homes.

According to nps.gov, "as many as 90 percent of wildland fires in the United States are caused by humans."
Those judgmental woodland critters SHOULD be blaming us. It's true what they say about preventing forest fires.
