Nine Wildfires Burning Across California

CALIFORNIA — Over 4,000 firefighters are battling nine large wildfires across California.

Yesterday, new fires erupted in Nevada and San Bernardino county. Firefighters are making good progress on both of these fires, while continuing to gain containment on the remaining blazes across the state.

Gusty winds and poor humidity recovery, particularly in the Sacramento Valley and foothills, continue in the forecast for Northern California.

Parts of Southern California will also see breezy and dry conditions through this evening and temperatures will remain near normal, keeping an elevated threat for large fires.

Many people don’t realize that 95 percent of all wildfires are caused by the activity of humans. It is imperative that all Californians do their part to prevent the next devastating wildfire. Learn more at www.ReadyForWildfire.org.
