California Statewide Fire Summary
California fire graphic

More than 4,300 firefighters remain on the frontlines of nine active wildfires around California, many of which are projected to be fully contained by the end of the week. Firefighters continue to extinguish hot spots and perform fire suppression repair work.

Temperatures across the state are hot and dry. Firefighters continue to brace for potential high fire activity in Southern California due to gusty winds and low humidity. Red Flag Warnings remain in effect from Kern County down to San Diego County. Winds are expected to be strong, with gusts up to 55mph. In response to the increased fire conditions, CAL FIRE has added extra staffing. 

Even though November is right around the corner, fire danger remains high. CAL FIRE is urging all Californians to not only be prepared, but to ensure that they take actions to prevent sparking a new wildfire. Even household powered equipment like weed trimmers and lawn mowers can spark a fire if not used carefully. Learn more tips on how to prevent a wildfire at

Since the start of the October Fire Siege on Oct. 8, CAL FIRE has responded to 250 new wildfires. At the peak of the wildfires there were 21 major wildfires that, in total, burned over 245,000 acres, 11,000 firefighters battled the destructive fires that at one time forced 100,000 to evacuate, destroyed an estimated 8,400 structures, and sadly, took the lives of 42 people.
