Wildfires, once confined to a season, burn earlier and longer

A New York Times article reports on the lengthening fire season in the western US and beyond.

From the article: Fires, once largely confined to a single season, have become a continual threat in some places, burning earlier and later in the year, in the United States and abroad. They have ignited in the West during the winter and well into the fall, have arrived earlier than ever in Canada and have burned without interruption in Australia for almost 12 months.
