Millions of acres of land were burnt by fire last year.
The ash was not as bad as the smoke--It was very hard to breath.
The Sunsets were very pretty though.
Nationwide fire season
The National Interagency Fire Center reported in mid-August that the 2015 fire season had been the most destructive since 2011. Nationwide, a total of 6,058,694 acres (24,519 km2) had burned, which is roughly triple the total land area burned from the same time span in 2014. By the end of August, in terms if the land area burned, the 2015 natiowide wildfire season had surpassed any other wildfire season in the last 10, years with 7,825,559 acres (31,669 km2) burned.
The 2015 California wildfires were a series of wildfires that burned across the state of California during 2015. By the end of the year, 6,337 fires had been recorded by CAL FIRE, which burned an area of 307,598 acres (1,245 km2).
On September 11, with the Butte Fire exploding from a size of 32,000 acres (129 km2) to 65,000 acres (263 km2), in the Amador and Calaverascounties, Governor Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency.
