 The dry conditions coupled with extremely gusty winds fanned dozens of wildfires that continue to keep firefighters very busy. Cal-Fire had already begun training many of its seasonal firefighters and inmate firefighters. CAL FIRE has also staffed many of its air tankers over a month earlier than normal.

Property owners are encouraged to maintain defensible space around their homes and manage properties by reducing vegetation where possible.
