The Californian Wildfire Season has already burned 19,070 acres 2021 resulting in a 26% increase from 2020’s numbers between the time period of January 1st through June 13th.
2020 alone saw five out of the ten largest wildfires on record; the largest being the August Complex fire which burned over 1 million acres. This alarming increase raises the need for Californians to make sure they’re properly prepared.
