California Statewide Fire Summary Thursday, September 7, 2012

Posted: September 7, 2012 10:55 a.m.
Updated: September 7, 2012 10:55 a.m.
 

While several new lightning fires were detected yesterday, the swift efforts by firefighters ensured that they were contained to small spots. Overall firefighters responded to nearly three dozen lightning sparked fires in northern California over the past couple of days.

Firefighters continue to make progress on the seven large wildfires that are burning up and down the state. While Wednesday night’s thunderstorms have moved out of the state, gusty winds continue to pose a challenge to firefighters. CAL FIRE is monitoring the winds closely as there is a good chance winds could significantly increase over the weekend.

CAL FIRE is reminding residents and vacationers who may head outdoors this weekend, to be extra cautious. The dry conditions and gusty winds will continue to elevate the fire danger. For more tips on how to be fire safe, visit www.fire.ca.gov.
