Lauren Tierney has an excellent article with graphics in the Washington Post on California's wildfire season to date. There is also a chart of the largest and most destructive fires.

Stephen J. Pyne is a prolific writer about wildfires in the United States and the world. In 2015 Between Two Fires: A Fire History of Contemporary America was released.  It is about management, fire policy and public perception of fire, topics he wrote about in a much earlier book.

The Thomas fire began December 4, 2017 and was declared 100% controlled on January 12, 2018
