Cal Fire notes that it is currently the largest wildfire incident, having started on July 14 in Butte and Plumas Counties in Northern California. The Dixie Fire is the latest wildfire resulting from a prolonged and severe statewide drought, high temperatures and gusty winds that spark dry fuel loads and give way to massive fires.

The Dixie Fire is by far the largest wildfire ravaging the California landscape, but it is just one of the fires that characterized another disastrous western wildfire season. Further north in Oregon, the Bootleg Fire, which started on July 6, has grown to consume more than 413,000 acres.
