  • Why the 2017 fire season is shaping up to be one of California’s worst http://www.latimes.com/projects/la-me-california-fire-seasons/ “Over time, the edges of cities have encroached on wild spaces. The close proximity between private property and wildlands allows fires to spread more rapidly and damage or destroy more property in the process. That allows fires during this part of the year to spread more rapidly into urbanized areas, Jin said. Many of these at-risk areas are in wildland-urban interface areas, or WUIs — where housing and vegetation intermix or come within close proximity of each other.
