US President Donald Trump has threatened to cut federal funding for the wildfires sweeping California, in a Twitter spat with the state's governor.
California fires: Trump threatens to pull federal aid funds
STEPANAKERT, NOVEMBER 4, ARTSAKHPRESS: Nearly 100,000 acres have been destroyed by wildfires in recent weeks, and thousands have been forced from their homes, BBC News reported.
Mr Trump blamed Democratic governor Gavin Newsom, saying he had done a "terrible job of forest management".
Several of this year's major wildfires have burned in unforested areas.
Increased temperatures due to global warming are causing huge wildfires in California regardless of how wet the previous winter was, according to a recent study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Drier, warmer conditions lead to vegetation drying out and becoming more flammable.
The president made a similar threat to cut federal aid last year, when the most deadly fire in California's history killed 86 people.
