Sacramento (CBS13) -Many people are wondering if the current weather conditions are a sign that a long, dry and dangerous summer could be.
Ofelia Alvarado rushed to her South Sacramento home on Monday morning to warn her grandchildren about a wildfire near their property.
“The vacant lot here-it’s on fire,” she said.
Her husband even spent time cleaning the house for safety.
“It was dry, so it took less than a few minutes to catch it in this wind,” she said.
As the fire season approaches, CAL FIRE states that it is working non-stop throughout the state in an attempt to reduce large amounts of fuel. Since July, more than 11,000 acres of open burning have been carried out and CALFIRE has completed more than 9,700 acres of other fuel reduction work.
This is a year-round effort, and the fire situation is already threatening the state sooner. So can this fire season be just as bad and last longer than usual?
“There is no question about that. The reality we are facing is the reality,” said the CALFIRE Battalion’s Master of Corporate Communication.
Sheri Sartre felt a change in weather conditions. In addition to the current drought, she is worried about what will happen.
“It can get worse,” she said. “I think they have to see what’s happening now. That’s our future at this point.”
