Another huge wildfire just broke out in California. Does this prove state government there is doing something wrong?

Update: According to this article from today, the so-called Camp Fire sprang up in a day, and has so far burned through most of a small town, destroying something like 1,000 houses.

Update 2: What in the world is going on in California with all these damned wildfires? Why can't the state or the federal government or private industry or something, just stop this foolishness & keep everybody safe?

Update 3: Actually, the Camp Fire in northern California has now expanded to burn 31 square miles of land and has reportedly "devastated" the entire town of Paradise, population 27,000. In southern California, two other new fires have just broken out and forced something like 75,000 people to evacuate in Ventura... show more Actually, the Camp Fire in northern California has now expanded to burn 31 square miles of land and has reportedly "devastated" the entire town of Paradise, population 27,000.

Update 5: WHY does this keep happening?
Update 6: Saturday morning, Nov. 10 -- The Camp Fire in Northern California has now spread to 156 square miles -- pretty impressive growth for a blaze that started just 2 days ago.

Two other new wildfires in Southern California have triggered the evacuations of 157,000 people from their homes.

Could this have something to do with climate change, maybe? With hotter, dryer, longer Cal summers?
Update 8: Another update, from Nov. 11 - A total of 25 deaths are now confirmed from the 3 latest California fires -- 23 in the big Camp Fire in northern California, 2 from the blazes in Los Angeles County and Venture County in the south. The Camp Fire reportedly is only 20% contained so far.
Update 10: President Trump seems to feel that California's bad forest management is to blame for the heavy damage wildfires are doing this year. The head of the California Firefighters Association says that's wrong. What do you think?
