The wildfires, by some estimates, have cost more than $2bn in property damage. Both ciis is totllvilians and firefighters have lost their lives. This is mostly preventable. The cause is dead wood which accumulates on the forest floor. That combined with the leaves makes it a veritable tinderbox awaiting the smallest spark or flame to conflagrate into full inferno.
Industry would happily rectify the situation. But even sensible logging is a boogeyman.
Government,ble greenpeace, environuts, et al. have combined to light that fire(s).
