Experts warn that Western states and the federal government need to radically increase the number and size of controlled burns to help reduce the ongoing risks of more catastrophic wildfire seasons.
The unprecedented fire season has already killed 30 people, and burned down thousands of buildings and homes, forcing over 96,000 residents to evacuate.

The state is seeing some of the worst wildfires in its history. At least six people have died and over 100,000 face evacuation orders as the fires show no sign of letting up.
