ABC News: West Under Highest Wildfire Alert (AP)

The U.S. National Interagency Fire CenterNational Interagency Fire Center has raised its wildfire preparedness level to the maximum, Level 5. This alerts U.S. National Guard units and firefighting crews in Canada, New Zealand, and Australia.

- 15,000 U.S. firefighters are already in the field in 12 states, battling 70 fires of at least 100 acres each.
- 1,000 new brush fires have started across the Western U.S. in the last 3 days.
- A brushfire that began last night has spread to 4,000 acres and has closed the Idaho National Laboratory.
- Nevada and Oregon each have fires of about 200 square miles. For those who live in the East, that's an area the size of Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens. If you live in the Bay Area, that's the size of the San Francisco peninsula, from Telegraph Hill to San Mateo plus the East Bay, from Berkeley to San Leandro. Utah has three such fires burning.

So if you live in the Rocky Mountains region and ANZACS start parachuting into your backyard, you might want to pack a suitcase...

WOW

It's really getting out of hand.

I haven't seen any articles on these recent fires until you posted it. I'm usually up on my current events.

If you look closely you can see Cheech Marron passed out where the majority of the smoke is coming from.

Great time for me to be in San Diego on business.

Oh well, at least I'm on the coast so I don't have to evacuate and work is close to the fires so I'm just chillin'

Thankfully all my family I know of in California is spread out between the Central Valley and the Bay Area so they shouldn't be affected by this. Still hard to watch though.
