The Seattle Seahawks are on their way to Los Angeles, an area that again is in crises by wildfires. As you can see from some of the images below, fires have forced tens of thousands of people to flee their homes this week, a story similar to the one told a year ago when the California wildfires burned nearly 1.4 million acres of land and was described as the most destructive wildfire on record. Who knows how long this particular fire will rage on for or how far it will stretch, but obviously millions of people are being affected right now, including the staff and players on the LA Rams.

Ahead of their Sunday meeting against the Seahawks, the Rams have cancelled Friday’s practice so that players can attend to any potential problems the fires are giving them. Last December’s fires forced the Rams to adjust their practice schedule ahead of a meeting against the Philadelphia Eagles, a game that LA lost 43-35.

Concerns last year were centered around the air quality, but that has not specifically been brought up as a concern this time yet.
