There are double perils in most places because these wildfires lead to the use of precious fresh water that is also approaching a terrible critical decision point - stop fires or stop drinking? Not good.
Also provided here are up-to-date facts - September 1, 2015 of all major wildfires currently being fought in the USA. And note that in just "one day" three new major fires were reported. This is a very bad joke, but - "shouldn't someone be calling FEMA by now?"
Well, as Winston Churchill once wisely remarked - "a joke is a very serious thing."
