Hi K.! Nor can I! It's so massive!
With the latest weather conditions:

Higher levels of relative humidity, decreasing wind speeds and some slight rain continue to give firefighters a brief reprieve, allowing them to take an aggressive, offensive stance when fighting the wildfires across the state. However, extremely critical fire weather is predicted again.
