California Fires May 19th Update: Good Progress



Over the weekend firefighters continued to make good progress towards containment of the four remaining large wildfires in San Diego County, in part due to the cooler weather.

Yesterday, the Tomahawk Fire on Camp Pendleton was fully contained, leaving three active wildfires. 

Last week, CAL FIRE responded to over 200 wildfires statewide. With drought caused dry conditions, and strong Santa Ana Winds, 10 of those wildfires were able to grow rapidly. All in total just over 27,000 acres burned, most of which was from the four major fires on Camp Pendleton. At the peak of this week's fire activity over 5,000 firefighters from CAL FIRE, federal and local fire departments battled the nearly dozen wildfires burning simultaneously.

 Across California most areas will continue to experience cooler weather and even some rain in parts of Northern California, which will bring the fire danger level back to a more normal level for this time of year. This will not be the case in the desert areas, as gusty winds and low humidity will increase the fire potential. By mid-week the rest of the state will see a change in weather with a rapid warming and drying trend, elevating the fire danger.

 With last week's large increase in wildfires, CAL FIRE is urging all Californians to take steps to prevent wildfires. Learn more at www.ReadyForWildfire.org.  One Less Spark, means One Less Wildfire.
