What are Wildfires? A Wildfire is any uncontrolled fire in deep dense forest. Wildfires often start unnoticed. These fires are usually triggered by lightning or accidents. They spread quickly, igniting trees, and homes which are in the nearby areas.

So Why is the west of North America burning ? “The early weeks of summer have been marked by brutal forest fires in states like Montana, Wyoming, Utah and most of all Colorado, where that state is dealing with the worst fires in its history.” Time Magazine Reported.

“So why are so many wildfires blazing out of control? Blame the weather first—the unusually warm winter meant that the fire season started earlier than usual, while the lack of snowfall meant that forests became drier. All these forest needed then was a spark to start burning.” Time reported.

Firefighters are working really hard to put out the fires.
