Wildfires are still raging across California and the West Coast. The Bobcat Fire, which started two weeks ago, has become one of Los Angeles County’s largest ever, scorching over 100,000 acres, with just 15% containment, prompting evacuation orders in communities near the Angeles National Forest. California’s largest wildfire ever recorded, the August Complex fire in Mendocino County, has burned over 830,000 acres and continues to grow. Doctors in Oregon and California say they are concerned by a surge in hospital visits as toxic smoke envelopes the region.
