Most of the state is in either an extreme drought or exceptional drought, raising concerns for the wildfires to come. But crews across the state are already battling several major fires.
The University of California Cooperative Extension has a fire activity map that shows where in California fires are currently burning:
The Dixie Fire is ravaging 30,000 acres and counting of a remote area near the town of Paradise, in the Feather River Canyon.
The Tamarack Fire, which was sparked by lightning on July 4, has taken about 36 square miles of dry brush and timber as of Monday, the Associated Press reports.
