But as global temperatures have risen, so too has the state’s risk for fall season fires. These images show late-autumn fires burning southeast of Los Angeles, alongside the scars of fires from earlier this year. In that timespan, the Blue Ridge fire burned 13,964 acres near the currently active Airport fire, and the Silverado fire burned 12,466 acres near the currently active Bond Fire. Despite the previous fires, enough brush and vegetation remains nearby to fuel the new fires. Cal Fire reported that fires have scorched more than 1.4 million acres in California since the beginning of the year.
