0 Wildfires Active
Wildfires result from a combination of natural factors and human activities. Climate change is a significant driver, with rising temperatures and prolonged droughts creating conditions conducive to fire ignition and spread. Dry vegetation becomes vulnerable to catching fire, and hot, windy conditions exacerbate fire growth. Lightning strikes during thunderstorms also contribute to wildfires, especially in dry areas.
Human activities are also a major cause of wildfires. Unattended campfires, discarded cigarettes, and intentional acts of arson can ignite flames that rapidly spread. Additionally, land-use practices like deforestation and the expansion of urban areas into wildlands increase the risk of wildfires.
