What’s burning? These are all of the current wildfires in California

More than 106,000 acres of California are currently on fire as a statewide emergency is in effect.

Firefighters are currently battling 11 confirmed wildfires in California. A total of 106,625 acres are actively on fire, that's more than 166 square miles spread across the state. 

Gov. Gavin Newsom declared a State of Emergency on Sunday due to "extremely dangerous fire weather conditions."

Not every wildfire is under the jurisdiction of Cal Fire. Many of the fires are burning in national parks under the supervision of the U.S. Forest Service, while others are small enough to remain under the watch of local fire departments.
