Having claimed at least 1,500 structures, the Woolsey Fire is now the most destructive wildfire ever to sweep through Los Angeles County.

It is the “largest fire on record,” Los Angeles County Fire Chief Daryl Osby said last week, pointing out that the blaze is now roughly of the size of Denver.

At 96,949 acres, the fire still hasn’t burned through quite as wide of an area as the Station Fire, which torched more than 160,000 acres of Angeles National Forest land in 2009.

And both fires pale in comparison to some of the largest in state history.

The Mendocino Complex Fire, which tore through Mendocino, Lake, Colusa, and Glenn counties earlier this year, was more than four times the size.

Still, few fires in the LA area have matched the scale of the Woolsey Fire, or its impact on the communities it has reached. The fire has claimed the lives of three people, and damaged hundreds of buildings that weren’t fully destroyed.
