Data-driven News App

During the 2017 southern California wildfires, I found myself wanting to know more about them. Specifically, I wanted to figure out the important details: the number of forces employed to contain the wildfires, how many structures were destroyed or damaged, the acreage burned, and the overall size of the fire.

I wondered if there would be any correlations between the size of the wildfires, the total number of forces employed to extinguish them, and the total number of damaged structures.

To answer these questions I collected data from the website of the 

State of California.
