 As firefighters continue to make progress on the seven major wildfires burning in California, hot weather is expected to return bringing higher fire danger. This morning approximately 4,000 firefighters remain on the frontlines of the major wildfires.
 95% of wildfires in CAL FIRE’s jurisdiction are sparked by the activity of people, which means almost every fire is preventable.
 CAL FIRE is urging the public to take steps to prevent sparking a wildfire. One Less Spark, means One Less Wildfire. Learn more at

****REMINDER**** Every fire has the ability to be catastrophic. The wildland fire management environment has profoundly changed. Growing numbers of communities, across the nation, are experiencing longer fire seasons; more frequent, bigger, and more severe, fires are a real threat. Be careful with all campfires and equipment.
