California Statewide Fire Summary

Friday, October 13, 2017
 

Overnight firefighters continued their battle against 17 wildfires that have

burned 221,754 acres. Several of the wildfires merged with other fires, while

full containment was made on three other.

While several of the fires experienced winds overnight they were relatively

light, but a Red Flag Warning has been issued for later tonight when winds are

expected to increase again. Tonight the winds are forecast to be stronger that

experienced Thursday with gusts up to 45mh.

The death toll has risen to 31 across 4 fires as estimates remain that 3,500

homes and other structures have been destroyed. Hundreds of additional fire

engines and firefighters have begun to arrive from several other states, not

only to help relieve crews on the frontlines, but to be ready for the possibility

of new wildfires that may ignite during the Red Flag Warnings.

With wildfire risk high, residents are urged to remain prepared for wildfires.
