Wildfire season in California is not limited to late summer and early fall anymore. The Golden State is turning brown in the midst of one of the most severe droughts on record.
From January 1 through the end of July, California firefighters have responded to nearly 3,900 blazes, which is a 41 percent increase over the same period in 2014, according to Associated Press reports. However, fires in 2015 have burned 28 percent less area than a year ago due to unseasonal rain storms and aggressive firefighting.
