California Wildfires by the Numbers

One thousand of 14,232 properties in three counties have, so far, been cleared of hazardous household waste so that fire-related debris can be removed. One thousand sixty-five fire personnel worked tirelessly to successfully contain 100 percent of the fires by December 2018. Today, all of the fall wildfires in California have been put out after the area recently received a good dose of much needed rain. But the rain also brought new challenges for homeowners who were affected by the fires.
