California Statewide Fire Summary September 28, 2020, Glass & Zogg Fires on the March

Sacramento, CA...Critical fire weather continues to fan multiple fast-moving major wildfires, as Red Flag Warnings remain in place over much of Northern California. Today, there are 27 major wildfires with over 18,000 firefighters on the front lines. During the windy conditions experienced yesterday, the Glass Fire in Napa County erupted, as well as the Zogg Fire in Shasta County, both growing rapidly and forcing evacuations.





Since the beginning of the year, there have been over 8,100 wildfires that have burned well over 3.7 million acres in California. Since August 15, when California’s fire activity elevated, there have been 26 fatalities and over 7,000 structures destroyed. A Red Flag Warning remains in effect through today throughout much of Northern California, due to gusty winds. A Red Flag Warning as well as the mountains of Southern California through the Santa Clarita Valley and down through parts of San Diego County, bringing gusty winds and low humidity, creating critical fire weather conditions. Warm and dry conditions persist across the state for the rest of the week.

Are you prepared if a wildfire should strike nearby? With Red Flag conditions in many parts of the state over the next few days, fires in these areas can spread rapidly. Making quick and safe evacuation is critical to protecting your life and your family. To learn ways to be prepared, visit www.ReadyForWildfire.org.

        No one has ever called it that. It is East Stockton. What is wrong with you not doing your research in making a move? You get what you deserve and have no grounds to complain now. If you are looking for sympathy, look elsewhere.

Thé person or people that hit on Copper, and Valley Springs are 100% Biden/Harris followers, the constant tactic the Left uses. I have spent time in every community in this county and believe me there are more true American’s in those communities than the total of the Liberal strongholds. You think you are cute putting those people down, we will see, Nov. 3rd. Is coming up, and you will eat your hate, just to make you more aggressive, be careful visiting those that you condem!

              Hillary is not running. But I agree that Trump will win, because there are so many angry people that just want to destroy our democracy. Why? I dont know, they call themselves patriots but want a dictator. It's so sad, I never dreamed that I would be living under a kleptocratic dictatorship . I was a life long Republican, my family were all Republicans, back to Lincoln. I am now politically homeless.

                To answer your question, its because Trumpanzees have not one arguement on his ability to govern. All they have is the past, just like their pathetic lives in which they exist. They constantly ask themselves "Where did I go wrong?"

    Where did you come from imbecile? Historically (the same today just increased population) Valley Springs is the a hole of the county, Copper. the armpit. Nothing has changed other than developers making money off of putting Citidiots in golf courses and subdivisions. Building a million dollar home in a sheet hole is just priceless.

    Not sure where you are from but it has always been that Copper and Valley Springs are not places for anyone in this county to ever be proud of. They are magnets for the worst criminals of the two valley cities they adjoin. You no nothing about this county.
