Many of us watch in horror as these fires burn down neighborhoods leaving so many families homeless. The wildfires in Colorado, Utah, Wyoming and New Mexico are devastating and hardly ending soon. Due to a very dry and hot La Nina weather pattern the western US is ripe for more wildfires.
Families are left homeless and so are many pets.
