Why does California have so many wildfires?


Question Posted Friday August 14 2009, 9:38 pm

It seems like every year on the news I see how California has these terrible fires that consume everything in their paths, including homes and businesses at some points. I am always shocked and amazed at how the fires are so uncontrollable.

Now, I know that California gets hot and stuff but why do they have SO many wildfires? I mean, other states don't seem to have as many--or, at least, they aren't publicized like California's fires. Why is California a more at-risk state?

Because it is hot and dry in the summer, no rain at all past spring. So in summer the grass on like hills and stuff is yellow/brown and more flammable, and if someone tosses a cigarette or something out their car window it can cause a huge fire. It's not actually all that hot here, just dry.

As far as I know, they're caused by heat, wind & the brush in the nature. Maybe this article can help clear things up:
