Wildfire smoke can irritate lungs, cause inflammation, affect the immune system and increase the possibility of lung infections, including the virus that causes COVID-19, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention cautions.

As Newsom toured a ghostlike landscape destroyed by flames Friday, he called out the "ideological BS" of those who deny the danger.

The state is seeing the effects of climate change, he said. You may have learned that we broke a world record in death valley. But he says when it comes to forests, downed trees and dried leaves on the ground eventually "just explode". And it had back-to-back heat waves.

He said the flames have devoured almost 2.3 million acres - 1.5 million of them since mid-August - as opposed to 118,000 a year ago. "There is no fire suppression plan on this planet that does anyone any good if it doesn't even acknowledge the role of climate change".

In southern OR to Northern California, warnings of low moisture and strong winds - conditions that can drive the flames - are in effect through Tuesday. Tens of thousands of people have been evacuated from their homes.

Several fires continue to burn throughout the Pacific Northwest, killing 10 people in OR and one in Washington. At least 35 people have died in California, Oregon and Washington, The Associated Press reported. As a result, she said, there's been a growing concern that we will see these large fires in Washington and OR, which is what's happening now. "The lights were on when I first got here", said athletics manager Bob Melvin. Around the devastated southwestern OR towns of Phoenix and Talent, some people set up food stations in parking lots.

"The hots are getting hotter. That's where you go when Vegas is like, 'Hey, take it easy, man, you're scaring our sex workers.'" And his indoor rally outside Vegas was deemed by one doctor to be "negligent homicide", he noted. "Every summer we're burning up".
