A WikiTribune reporter will be right by the Mendocino Complex Fire next week, the largest wildfire in the history of California. Firefighters expect the blaze to be controlled by then, leaving residents with the process of returning home, and preparing for the next one (NBCNews).

“In California, it’s not a question of if the next fire comes, it’s when,” said Jonathan Cox, battalion chief and information officer with Cal Fire.

Over 100 homes have been destroyed in the Mendocino Fire, according to local media outlet KCRA3Report with WikiTribune on wildfires by offering ideas to pursue or resources that could help. 

Questions

  1. Why were major towns spared from the Mendocino Complex Fire?
  2. Does the U.S. have a robust fire safety system, or a subpar one, compared to other countries?
  3. How big is the fire compared to other larges fires in the state’s past?
