If you live in Los Angeles, wildfires are a fact of life. They are as common as the hot, dry weather that brings them. And due to climate change and the ever expanding population in Southern California, wildfire season is now all year long.
There is no more unpredictable and dangerous fire than a wind-driven wildfire. As winds change intensity and direction, a wildfire can go from a contained, small burn in a backyard to a raging inferno acres in size. And it can happen in minutes. Wildfires can burn so hot and grow so large, that they actually create their own weather.
This is not something you can fight with your garden hose!
