Been watching documentaries and news cuts on it, most noticeable is interviews with fire fighter /bush fire guys who have been at it 30 to 40 years who all (regardless of area or country) are saying the same thing, the "fire season" is getting longer and fires that do break out are more extreme, ability to do really anything meaningful is low.
Even with new tech, real time satellite reporting, planes, new retardant additives, more man power on the ground, the fires are more extreme.
I took Australia has more fire awareness, most non urban dwellers live in Bush land, and any fire massively threatens their way of life. California seems to be the opposite, so many started from avoidable human reasons (cigarette stubs, parties, vehicles, power lines/utility issues).
Oregon only been once and it rained constantly for 3 weeks, just like home :p
There's a free docu on YouTube "black Saturday" which is from the 2009 Victoria mega fires where a number started on the same day, loss of property, life and animals and their habitat was already high, then wind changed 90 degrees and it got much worse
