Dousing Rainfall To Remain Absent From California Into Late July As Wildfire Season Ramps Up

As wildfires continue to char land in California, mainly dry, warm weather will provide little to no relief for firefighting efforts heading into the peak of fire season. According to the National Interagency Fire Center, the number of wildfires and acres burned so far this year has nearly kept the same pace as 2017, which was one of the most destructive fire seasons on record. Sixteen active fires are burning across California as of Sunday evening, July 15, according to Cal Fire.
