A couple of very tough months are ahead for the wildfire season and firefighting attempts in the western United States, especially California.
Approximately 110 large wildfires are burning across the U.S., and most of these fires are burning in the West, according to the National Interagency Fire Center. Countless acres of brush, which growth was spurred on by winter and spring moisture, have had all summer to dry out.
Extreme heat, dryness, burning sunshine and accidental and intentional incidents by humans have already contributed to an intimidating fire year.
As much as 90 percent of wildfires in the U.S. are generated by humans, according to the National Park Service.
