Despite recent rain and snowfall, California continues to face unprecedented drought and critically low fuel moisture conditions. For the first time in many years, fire season did not close this winter in Southern California, and dry conditions returned to Northern California in late December. As a result, initial attack fire activity since January 1st is well above average, and we have experienced large fire activity around the State, including Humboldt County, normally one of the wettest locations in the country this time of year. In response to these dangerous conditions, the Governor has approved a number of measures to ensure that CAL FIRE is ready to meet this increased threat and to maintain an aggressive initial attack and overall fire suppression strategy.
