Perhaps a single "California Wildfires" thread would be a good idea.

Iím essentially in the middle of four major fires where Iím at in Fresno.  You canít even see the Sierras due to all the smoke, definitely sucks having allergies.

We need to have a general wildfires thread. California alone would be able to pump up enough content year-round.

Does anyone think that calling this the "Camp Fire" was not that good of an idea..? Campfire...

Cal Fire and Butte County decided on that name though. Not the outlets I looked at initially though. Headlines in the area outlets originally said Butte County Fire or Paradise, CA fire though.

Isnít it just named after Camp Creek where it originated from?

I suppose the question then is why not call it the Camp Creek Fire? Or are they against two names.

Speaking of which, there was a fire earlier in the summer called the Carr Fire. I'm sure it was named for a road, but wasn't that fire actually caused by a "car?"

When I first started looking at this thread I thought Butte County was someplace in Montana, since Butte was there. It wasn't until the next day that I realized it was California.

Usually there is some sort of geographic feature the fires are named after.  I live near where the Fergusson Fire was which was named after a slide zone on CA 140 along the Merced River.  The Camp Fire has been brutal in terms of smoke, Iím a couple hundred miles south of it and I still have about only half mile visibility through the haze.
