CAL FIRE has responded to over 60 percent more wildfires this year than on average, and with that news, cal-Fire Nevada, Placer, Yuba Battalion Chief Chris Paulus, says Cal-Fire has upped their staffing for fire season, earlier than ever before.
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.
