Firefighters in Contra Costa County spent the day preparing for fire dangers and removed dangerous brush from several hundred acres of undeveloped property in Antioch. Jodi Hernandez reports.

Firefighters say another rain-light winter has left the Bay Area with drier than normal vegetation.

Couple that with the recent windy weather the region has been experiencing, plus cutbacks in fire personnel Bay Area-wide, the fire season could be disastrous.

Contra Costa County firefighters on Wednesday spent the day preparing for such an event, practicing their mobile attack techniques and fighting fire with fire as they removed dangerous brush from several hundred acres of undeveloped property in Antioch.

Jodi Hernandez provides a full report in the video above.
