Does it count as climate change-related when these fires are starting due to human activity? It seems part of the problem is that one fire starts, either by accident or on purpose, and then several more pop up as fire bugs start lighting fires all over (as was the case in San Diego). FD resources get strained and it just takes longer to put them out because efforts are spread thin. My guess is that large fires would be just as infrequent if you removed us from the equation.
