S.California braces for more fires

On the heels of devastating wildfires that killed more than 40 people in Northern California earlier this month, Southern California is now on high alert for fire danger.

Nearly all of Southern California has been placed on a red flag warning through Wednesday, as weather conditions ― including high winds, low humidity and record-breaking heat ― make the region particularly susceptible to wildfires.

As temperatures reached record highs above 100 degrees in Los Angeles and nearby counties on Monday, and were expected to rise even further in the coming days, the National Weather Service warned of the “most dangerous fire weather conditions seen in the past few years.”

Cal Fire has increased staffing in the area, bracing for any fires that might come. The agency has also been pushing out an important message to the public: You can help prevent a wildfire, too.
