California Fire Containment and Fatalities Update
California Firefighters Look to Full Containment
More than 3,000 firefighters remain on the frontlines of 7 active wildfires, many of which are projected to be fully contained by the end of this week. Firefighters continue to extinguish hot spots and perform fire suppression repair work.
Temperatures across the State remain warm and dry. Firefighters are prepared for potential fire activity throughout California. CAL FIRE is urging all Californians to be prepared no matter what the weather may be like, and ensure that they take actions to prevent sparking a new wildfire.

At the peak of the wildfires there were 21 major wildfires that, in total, burned over 245,000 acres, 11,000 firefighters battled the destructive fires that at one time forced 100,000 to evacuate, destroyed an estimated 8,700 structures (as damage assessment continues, this is the latest count), and sadly, took the lives of 42 people.
