As of Thursday, more than 15,600 firefighters were battling more than two dozen fires considered “major,” along with hundreds of smaller blazes.

Many of these fires were caused by lightning strikes.

14,000: The number of lightning strikes recorded since Aug. 15.
700+: The number of wildfires sparked in the same time period.
