The new normal (part 20): 4,000 acre wildfire in California

Yes, that is an entire hill on fire.

The US wildfire season is not over:

A wildfire burning in the Angeles National Forest has grown by another 500 acres and fire officials have stepped up the response to fighting the blaze.

U.S. Forest Service spokeswoman Angie Lavell said Monday that an incident management team was set up early in the morning to map out a long-term strategy to contain the 4,000-acre fire and to request additional firefighting resources.

The fire is currently five percent contained and is heading deeper into a wilderness area away from any structures.

But let’s not mention climate change eh?
