California Statewide Fire Summary November 1, 2020

Sacramento, CA...Over 4,600 firefighters continue to battle 22 wildfires in California. Yesterday, firefighters responded to 37 new wildfires, all of which were quickly contained. As favorable weather remains, firefighters are gaining the upper hand on these fires with containment numbers increasing.

California will be under the influence of a strong high pressure system, with continued warm and very dry conditions. Locally breezy today through Thursday. Maximum temperatures will be 5 to 15 degrees above normal away from the coastal areas, and low humidity. Winds will generally be light with gusts up 35 mph in some mountain areas. Warm and dry weather will keep fire danger heightened.

With Daylight Saving Time ending early this morning, CAL FIRE reminds all Californians when they change their clocks, to test their smoke alarms. New smoke alarms have a 10-year battery that don’t need to be replaced annual, while older smoke alarms that use disposable batteries should have them replaced today.

Stay smart Californians. When we get some substantial rain is when we can relax again.

    It's Climate Change, doing anything in the forest is just a waste of time and money. So let's tax the working class and get the bullet train on the fast track. When Biden becomes President, we'll need this train to get our new democrats from Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and a few other countries coming across our southern borders and relocate these people all across California, and Oregon and Washington would like some too. Who else will we get to pick our crops, and bring our favorite illegal drugs to us along with underaged sex trafficking?

      I live here in foothills of California all of my life. Never got a thought about lazy people who live and bitch to maintain a every growing area. Meaning trees and folks with more money than brains. You stupid rich build a house in this area then complicated roads and fire safety. Stick to what you know and go back to Pelosiville and Silicon-a- man valley. We were fine without you.

        They have ruined that area and no longer want to live there. They have come to fix ours now.

        You should have your thoughts together before you start typing.

          I think that in his/her mind, that's all perfectly coherent.

            So a couple of thoughts. With the rain will bring large scale mud slides and ground destabilization, no time to relax! Next, regarding the original post. Anyone notice once again the amount of active and who is the responsible jurisdiction? The U.S. Forest Service, why is that? Regarding destructive California fires, anyone wonder why Calfire is no longer capable of handling lighting related fires? It’s not the first time California has experienced lighting storms.

Time to turn your CDF trucks in boys and girls. You are a bunch of freeloaders driving those white vehicles home, to school to drop your kids off, stopping at eateries on the dime, using them as though you own them! If I was in charge every CDF vehicle would be turned in by Dec. 1st. Start driving your own wheels, your pensions are enough to gag a maggot!
