Dry, Windy Weather Contributes Significantly to the Spread of Wildfire

Drought conditions and low humidity lead to dry vegetation that burns easily.

Wind can cause fires to grow quickly, die down, or change direction.

Strong winds carry embers that can start new fires – up to a 6 miles away.

Weather conditions can change quite rapidly – from “no problem” to “high alert” in a matter of hours – OR MINUTES!
