The Lionshead fire was caused by lightning, several others were caused directly by people, and the rest are under investigation.

Here in Oregon, lack of forest management is to largely to blame. Little to no thinning of extremely dense forests, along with massive amounts of debris on the forest floor fueled the quick spread. Other states clear the forest floor every year and burn the piles in winter. Oregon dropped the ball.

Yes indeed, all fires are caused by someone or something.... but do you think it's a coincidence that we have these fires raging and one of the warmest summers ever?

It's myopic to think it won't keep happening more often.

Just like the current coronavirus pandemic, we're going to see more and more novel viruses too (some of which will cause another pandemic)

Definitely a diurnal effect with the calmer morning winds (higher / worse PM2.5 AQI) and windier later in the day (lower / better AQI). 10 pm Pacific:
