Paradise is burning – quite literally.

A wildfire in Butte County, California, is spreading rapidly through the region. Starting near Camp Creek Road early Thursday morning, around 0630 hours Pacific Time according to the Los Angeles Times, it jumped from consuming 10 acres to over 10,000 in a couple of hours.

The latest estimates, per NBC News, are that 18,000 acres of land in Northern California have been ignited by the flames, which is likely to increase as the quick-moving conflagration keeps marching on. Residents in nearby towns, including Pulga and Paradise, have been ordered to flee. So far, according to fire officials, precisely zero percent of the wildfire has been contained; it looks as if evacuations of tens of thousands of people are taking priority for now.

Climatologist Daniel Swain, using satellite imagery, has shown that it’s effortlessly burning through the town of Paradise, where thousands of buildings have been destroyed. He estimates that it’s burning around 80 acres per minute, aided by a sustained, strong, dry east wind and low humidity. “Really bad feeling about this one,” he added in a tweet.

It’s hard to visualize just how quickly this fire is spreading, so let’s put it another way: it’s burning through an area equivalent to Manhattan Island every three hours.

As of an hour ago, BuzzFeed Storm – a twitter account that provides live updates to various disasters – noted that “multiple civilians and two firefighters” have been injured by what has been dubbed the Camp Fire. The Enterprise-Record reports Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea as saying that there is word of several fatalities, but no concrete numbers are available for the moment.

The scenes being shared on social media are breathtaking; the skies are dark in the region of the fire, with glimpses of the fires poking through from time to time on the hills. The smoke is so thick that in the middle of the day, the Sun is completely obscured in some parts. A fire whirl, a vortex of flaming material, was seen for a moment making its way around Paradise, as seen in a video shared by ABC7 News Reporter Laura Anthony.

Anthony Farnell, a meteorologist, tweeted that smoke from the Camp Fire is flitting across the skies above San Francisco, 155 miles away.

At this stage, it’s difficult to compare this wildfire with other record-breakers, as it’s still evolving. The largest wildfire in Californian history, the Mendocino Complex – consisting of two individual fires – consumed 459,123 acres before it was contained, per Earther.

Although wildfire size can be a rough proxy for destructive potential, the devastation depends largely on where the fire is heading through, how tricky it is to contain, and how difficult it is to get people out of harm’s way. Remember, as with any event like this, it’s the people that define the hazard, not just the wildfire/hurricane/earthquake/eruption/tsunami itself. The Camp Fire’s violence will only be truly revealed post-mortum.

The Camp Fire isn’t the only wildfire in town, though. At least two more, dubbed the Woolsey Fire and the Hill Fire, are burning through Southern California’s Ventura County. According to CAL FIRE, the former is around 300 acres in size, whereas the Hill Fire is 10,000 acres across.

The US National Weather Service has tweeted that the outlook for these fires is looking decidedly concerning throughout the rest of Thursday and into Friday. Apart from the region’s low humidity, the presence of those gusty offshore winds and the ample dry fuel availability, they note that “unseasonably warm conditions” are playing a role too in creating “very dangerous conditions.”

As ever, we must bring up climate change, because it’s the problem that makes every other problem worse. I’m not saying in any way that climate change caused the Camp Fire, nor am I attempting to attribute climate change to this particular wildfire. The fact remains that when the environmental conditions are being perturbed – gamed, if you will – by humanity’s actions, then wildfires like this are a glimpse of the future.

As noted by Carbon Brief, climate change’s tendency to push the mercury ever higher has made, and will continue to make, fires like this one larger and more destructive. In California, it’s notable that 14 of the 20 largest wildfires in recorded history have occurred within the past 15 years, the same time the region has experienced a collection of the warmest years on record.

There’s not much you can do as an individual to stop wildfires when they get started, but for sure, by promoting awareness of the problem, and electing politicians that will do something about it, you can help tame the future.
