A firefighter clears brush near an escape route for firefighters at Rum Creek Fire in southwest Oregon on August 29, 2022. A series of heat waves, on top of the prolonged drought in the West, have fueled dozens of wildfires throughout the month. The combination of strong winds, low relative humidity and dryness fuels the rapid spread and erratic behavior of any fire that gets started. These factors also make it exceedingly difficult to fight the fires that are already burning. (Robert Hyatt, NOAA’s National Weather Service)
