California Fire Death Toll Hits 41




11,000+ Firefighters Battle California Fires

In the past week, over 245,000 acres have burned across California.  More than 11,000 firefighters continue making progress on 12 large wildfires burning in the State.  The death toll remains at 41, and more than 5,700 structures destroyed. 

As containment figures continue to increase, many of the evacuations across the fires in Northern California have been lifted. Over 34,000 people remain evacuated, but many of the evacuation orders are being reevaluated. Residents returning home are urged to be cautious as hazardous conditions may remain. Learn more tips on how to return home after a wildfire at www.fire.ca.gov.

The weather today will be warm with low humidity, which will continue to challenge firefighters, but only light winds are forecast.  A chance of precipitation is expected to arrive later in the week, bringing relief from the dry conditions.
