Reid blames climate change: 'West is burning' | Las Vegas Review-Journal
There seems to be conflicting information about wildfires and the conditions that are causing them.
Numbers compiled by the National Interagency Fire Center indicate there have been fewer wildfires this year than in recent years.
Through Wednesday, there have been 25,370 wildland fires that have burned 2.057 million acres, according to the center, which coordinates federal agency responses to the blazes from its base in Boise, Idaho.
Through the same date last year, there were 32,920 fires that burned 3.7 million acres.
In 2011, there were 40,736 wildfires through July 17, burning 5.9 million acres.
Reid has seen different data, his spokeswoman Kristen Orthman said Wednesday evening.
