The wildfires that ravaged Northern California's wine country last month are part of a pattern of larger and more destructive infernos that have dominated the 2017 fire season nationally, according to the National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC). From January 1 through October 16, 8.77 million acres had burned in the U.S in 51,277 fires, compared with 4.913 million acres in 49,986 fires for the comparable period last year.
