Recent California Wild Fires

After our discussion in class about wildfires and recent unfortunate events in California, we decided to dig deeper into the issue. We gathered our data from a few sources and created tangible model that gives a bird’s eye view of the state of California and the top five major fires from the past twenty years. Down below is the data that we compiled for the final project. For space and time, we only focused on doing the top five most destructive wildfires in size of acreage in California’s state history. This data comes from Wikipedia and we have noticed that the most if not all of these fires have happened within the past 20 years and are far to the North.
