Cal Fire, Public Team Up to Battle Wildfire Season

Now is not the time to let your guard down when it comes to grassfires, however Cal Fire says the public is doing a good job so far in preventing them. 

With this year's fire season extending into July and August, Cal Fire says people taking the proper measures to avoid flare-ups are helping a lot.

"Californians are doing their best to pay attention to the fact that we're in the midst of a severe drought that has been going on for over three years now," Cal Fire spokesperson Lynne Tolmachoff said. 

With two grassfires flaring up near Cal Expo in the past several weeks, Tolmachoff, says they've been doing their best to educate the public. 

"We have our inspectors out throughout the state, they're going out helping out homeowners letting them know what they need to do to prepare their home for when a wildfire does come through their area," she said. 

Tolmachoff is still reminding everyone to leave a defensible space around their homes and avoid using lawn mowers or weedwackers during the hottest part of the day.
