California Statewide Fire Summary

Despite gusty winds throughout much of northern California, firefighters made good progress on containment of the nine wildfires burning up and down the state. Several of the wildfires are expected to be contained later today.

The Red Flag Warnings issued by the National Weather Service for gusty winds in northeastern California and Lake County expired last night. Very dry and warm weather is expected across much of northern California with winds increasing out of the north. The northerly offshore winds will enhance the warm dry conditions and increase the fire danger. In Southern California the scattered showers through many areas has lessened the fire danger.

With fall approaching, CAL FIRE is reminding Californians that it’s this time of year when the state experiences the largest and most damaging wildfires. All residents should have a wildfire checklist and an evacuation plan in place. To learn more visit www.ReadyForWildfire.org.
