California Braces for Record Wildfires

Fire departments from across the state of California are preparing for another season of wildfires as blazes currently ravage the terrain, following yet another dry winter setting the stage for the worst season of fires in California on record.
Southern California Fire Chiefs, joined by CAL FIRE and federal agency officials, made an assessment on Friday and urged residents living in fire-prone areas to prepare for the upcoming season of potential evacuations. They also urged residents to develop plans that would help defend the space around their properties from fires, according to NBC Los Angeles.
The officials collectively delivered a warning about the persistently dry conditions that left terrain ripe for fires to spread rapidly, particularly in areas that haven’t been effected by fires in decades.
Last summer, wildfires in California shattered records. However, new data indicates that California is on pace to experience yet another record breaking season of wildfires as numbers show an increase of nearly 1,000 more fires reported compared to this time last year.
