Wildfires have once again come into the spotlight in some parts of the western United States. From Colorado to California, it seems the blazes from last year never went out. Jacksonville based Magellan Transport Logistics has partnered with the Department of Agriculture U.S. Forest Service in providing assistance to those affected.
Officials don’t refer to “fire seasons anymore but rather to fire years,” says Jennifer Jones, a spokesperson for the National Interagency Fire Center.
The NIFC reports that this year, wildfires have burned more than 3.6 million acres, behind the 4.9 million acres that had burned as of this time last year.
