In the U.S. state of Colorado, the Cameron Peak Fire has become the largest wildfire in the state’s history, burning over 200,000 acres.  

The CalWood Fire, which broke out over the weekend, has forced over 3,000 people to evacuate in Boulder County.  The state of Colorado is experiencing drought conditions, with around 60% of the state in extreme drought conditions or worse.

Earlier, Donald Trump reversed course and approved relief funds for the devastating, climate change-fueled wildfires in California, which is going through its worst fire season ever recorded. The federal funds had been refused just hours earlier.  

Over 4 million acres have burned so far in 2020, more than double California’s previous record.
