The wildfires in California are the largest ever recorded.
But new data crunching shows, fortunately, they're not the deadliest.
So far this year... more than 6,200 square miles have burned.
That's the size of Connecticut. That's nearly triple the previous record.
California says the average wildfire size used to be under 50,000 acres. It's now over 300,000.
In terms of fatalities, 31 people have died this year in California. But a Los Angeles Times tally shows that the inferno in Butte County north of Sacramento called the Camp Fire killed 85 in November 2018.
