Brush fires from Orange County to Santa Clarita have burned thousands and thousands of acres in 2018.
Wind and low humidity during the summer months provide a dangerous combination in Southern California, with dry brush fueling the flames.
More than 1,800 wildfires have been reported so far this year in California, burning about 14,500 acres, according to Cal Fire. At this point last year, more than 1,600 fires burned 26,000 acres during one of the state's worst years for deadly and destructive fires. The five-year average during that same time frame for California is nearly 1,900 fires and 15,200 burned acres.
