Since the beginning of the year, there have been over 8,834 wildfires that have burned well over 4.1 million acres in California.
These massive fires are driven by a combination of things such as climate change, difficult wind conditions, arson, government mismanagement, and human error.
The State of California is working overtime with both our local and Federal partners to contain and extinguish these wildfires as well as to help the thousands of displaced families get the resources needed to recover.
We are grateful to all the brave Firefighters and first responders for risking their lives to protect life and property.
