Campgrounds were evacuated and residents put on alert Monday as a California wildfire threatened hundreds of structures in the Sierra national forest, one of nine blazes burning across the state.

Across California and other western states, hot, dry and windy conditions fuelled by the ongoing drought have hampered firefighters’ efforts to contain more wildfires than usual.

Since 1 January, firefighters in California have responded to about 1,300 more blazes than usual for the period.

“As we continue to get deeper into the summer, conditions are only going to be drier,” said state fire spokesman Daniel Berlant.

    As the temps rise here and the wind increases the humidity drops and stuff bursts into flame at the least provocation, mowing your lawn and hitting a rock causes sparks that start grass fires.
    An old truck lost a rear axle and the subsequent sparks from the dragging axle started a major fire.
    I had the experience after driving an old Nova from a friends house and having the right front disk brake catch on fire on a forest backroad, with flames coming out around the wheel, I quickly squirted my bottled water on it snuffing out the fire, without the water the whole car could have went up setting the surrounding forest ablaze, dodged that bullet back then.
    I still see butt tossers on the highway that thoughtlessly discard live cigarettes even as dry as it is.

    @ the Birch & Barley after 44 minutes. Having Chopped Seafood Salad. Nice day out.

    Among all the other newer cars in Pullman there are 3 almost the color of Yellow Cabs. Poor taste.
