California’s Wildfires Are Now The Same Size As Six Manhattans (Vocativ, Aug 4, 2015):

Wildfires have destroyed or damaged 137,000 acres of Californian land this year, about the same size as six Manhattans, 4.5 San Franciscos, three Washington D.C.s or 1.5 Philadelphias. That’s nearly three times California’s five-year average of 48,153 acres to August 1, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.
