California Fires Rage On: May 17th Update


Share It.




Yesterday, Santa Ana Winds diminished significantly allowing firefighters to make good progress toward containment of the half dozen wildfires still burning.

Despite the reduction in winds, most of San Diego continued to experience hot temperatures yesterday, which combined with the dry conditions allowed for a new wildfire to ignite on Camp Pendleton. This morning, six large wildfires remain active that have all together burned over 25,000 acres, mostly on Camp Pendleton.

 Winds have shifted across much of Southern California, bringing winds onshore from the ocean. In most areas this shift has brought cooler temperatures and higher humidity, but gusty winds and dry conditions continue to elevate the fire danger. All Red Flag Warnings have expired, but gusty winds may still pose an elevated fire threat.

Since January 1, CAL FIRE has responded to over 1,500 wildfires. In an average year that number would be approximately 800. This week's rash of wildfires is a reminder of just how dry conditions are in California. CAL FIRE is urging all Californians to ensure they are ready for wildfires by visiting www.ReadyForWildfire.org.
