8 months after Creek Fire, Fresno County homeowners prepare for another wildfire season

CAL FIRE Battalion Chief Dan Urias says, “We can’t predict where the fire is going to be coming from. We can plan and prepare the communities but the emergency response is always going to be there.”

The combination of climbing temperatures and a dry winter has CAL FIRE bracing for not if but when the next big wildfire happens.

Urias adds, “It’s already happening, we just need to keep on with the communication and hopefully the fire season isn’t as bad as we’re predicting it to be. ”

Close to 14,000 acres have already burned statewide this year. This time last year that acreage was less than 2,000.
