As of Monday, three major wildfires - the Camp, Hill, and Woolsey fires - have killed dozens of people and scorched hundreds of thousands of acres of forests and infrastructure.Firefighters are struggling to contain the biggest blazes.
The Camp Fire, which is located north of Sacramento, quickly burned the entire town of Paradise to the ground.
