Fires Plague Southern California


Share It.

Over the past couple of days the state's fire activity has been extremely high as drought conditions and strong Santa Ana winds have plagued Southern California.

Yesterday CAL FIRE responded to nearly three dozen wildfires, eight of which remain active as gusty winds continue to pose a challenge.  

Already this year, CAL FIRE has responded to over 100 percent more wildfires than on average, and May's fire activity only has continued that trend. Fortunately, CAL FIRE began its transition into fire season several months earlier than normal and in Southern California fire season really never ended as CAL FIRE kept its seasonal staffing and aircraft available all winter long.

Much of Southern California remains under a Red Flag Warning for high fire danger due to the Santa Ana winds and low humidity, which is expected to last through today. While firefighters continue to battle eight active wildfires, the public is urged to be extra cautious outdoors in order to help prevent additional fires. Here are some additional steps Californians should take during the high fire danger day.
