Stretched resources, weather, and arson heighten local fire potential Featured

Written by 

Recent fires in our state have tapped Northern California CAL FIRE equipment and personnel leaving overall fire resources diminished in our area as hotter, dryer weather leads to increased fire potential. In addition to stretched resources and fire hazard prone weather, our local situation has been impacted by a bout of suspected arson caused blazes.

In an interview, aired on Fri., May 3, 2013 by KMUD News Director Terri Klemetson, Cal Fire Battalion Chief Jeremy Monroe indicated that we are in a very elevated fire hazard time right now with the potential for fires to become large fires. Monroe implores people to, "Be careful with fire in the wild lands."
