California Statewide Fire Summary May 3


    Google+    

By: Daniel Berlant, CAL FIRE

May 3, 2013 - Fire activity across California remained high yesterday and overnight. One of those new fires was a fast moving wildfire in Ventura County that quickly forced the evacuations of hundreds. The Springs Fire near Camarillo continues to burn very actively and is threatening several thousand homes. Over 3,000 firefighters are on the frontlines of the six major wildfires burning in California. CAL FIRE has deployed Incident Management Teams to the Springs Fire as well as the Panther Fire in Tehama County to provide command and control of those large fires.

A Red Flag Warning remains in effect for Southern California, as well as Tulare and Kern counties due to the strong winds and low humidity. The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning in Northern California from Shasta County down to Lake and Yuba Counties. Though much of the state is at a higher than normal fire threat, the areas under the Red Flag Warning have an elevated fire danger. The combination of dry conditions coupled with very gusty winds and low humidity create the perfect conditions for wildfires. CAL FIRE is asking everyone to be extra safe outdoors in order to help prevent new wildfires. Here are some steps Californians should take during high fire danger days: http://calfire.ca.gov/communications/communications_firesafety_redflagwarning.php

Residents are also encouraged to visit www.ReadyForWildfire.org for tips on how to prepare themselves, their families and their homes for wildfires.
