Cooler temperatures and rainfall typically enables fire crews to put away the wildfire gear. But not this season. Although temperatures cooled, the rainfall did not arrive. The hillside vegetation is extremely dry and fire crews continue to battle wildfires.
Don't let the cool temperatures fool you. The dry vegetation simply needs an ignition source and a gentle breeze and we can have a serious problem.
Continue to be vigilant and fire safe. Call 9-1-1 if you see a fire or smell what you think might be a wildfire.
