We are in fire season, please remain vigilant and call 911 if you see plumes of smoke where there shouldn't be.

Everyone has been doing a fantastic job reporting quickly and please understand it truly makes a difference for the firefighters to get on scene as soon as possible when a fire breaks out. The sooner they get there, the easier it is to get it under control.

With the heat rising and the already dry conditions, we need to be especially careful out there.
