This is now California largest fire on record by a ridiculous margin–it’s essentially double the previous record, previously set just two years ago in 2018. Given the minimal containment on this fire and continued adverse fire weather conditions expected in the coming days, I would expect the August Complex to become California’s first true modern “megafire” in the coming days–a single contiguous event burning over 1 million acres.
