NBC's Evan Bush and Dana Griffin are reporting on the massive heatwaves hitting the US on CNBC. 

An early-season heat wave is set to bring triple-digit temperatures to parts of California and Arizona this week. The National Weather Service predicts temperatures in Phoenix to reach up to 113 degrees Fahrenheit, while California's Central Valley could see highs of 108 degrees. This heat wave, driven by a high-pressure ridge, is expected to intensify fire risks and put significant strain on health and infrastructure systems. Already, a grass fire near Tracy, California, has burned over 14,000 acres, underscoring the increased fire threat. This event signals an early start to the wildfire season, typically more active in July through September, and highlights the need for residents to be prepared for evacuation at short notice.
