Smoke from wildfires fills the sky over Pasadena, Calif., in this view looking east down Colorado Boulevard in a Saturday, Sept. 12, 2020 file photo. The fires consuming the forests of California and Oregon and darkening the skies over San Francisco and Portland are also damaging an economy already struggling with the coronavirus outbreak. In the communities where they are raging, wildfires are destroying property, running up huge losses for property insurers and putting a strain on economic activity that could linger for a year or more.
