California Fires Near Containment: May 20th Update



Firefighters continue to make good progress towards full containment on the remaining three large wildfires burning in San Diego County. Full containment is expected on the fires over the next couple days.

 Cooler weather across much of the state has drought the fire danger level back to a more normal level for this time of year. As thunderstorms moved over California, CAL FIRE increased its staffing in areas of Northern California in case of any lightning sparked wildfires. It appears that those areas have seen light rain, which has helped reduce the threat of new fires. Later in the week the weather is expected to change and bring much warmer and drier weather.

As California is well into fire season, its critical that all residents be prepared. CAL FIRE asks everyone to remember "Ready, Set Go!". Be "Ready" by maintaining 100 feet of Defensible Space around your home. Be "Set" by having a wildfire action plan and knowing what you would take if evacuated. Lastly, "Go!" early when a wildfire approaches or you are asked to evacuate. For more information on "Ready, Set, Go!" visit www.ReadyForWildfire.org.
