The number of damaged and destroyed structures has been updated and increased due to ground based validation by a damage inspection team. The majority of the increase results from minor structures, such as outbuildings, motorhomes, and storage containers.

With summer weather and extreme drought conditions, we are asking everyone to continue to use caution, “one less spark - one less wildfire”. For more information on how to prepare for wildfires, go to www.readyforwildfire.org.
