More than 70 wildfires burning across US west coast

Washington Correspondent

Wildfires are once again ravaging the Western United States of America. Currently there are over 70 burning in multiple states – including one that has already burned over 200,000 acres in Oregon.

The fires are a consequence  of a deadly heatwave engulfing much of the west coast and has set a succession of record breaking temperatures.

Last week, the temperature in Death Valley, California, topped 54 degrees celsius.
