Local firefighters are preparing for the increased risk of  wildfires this summer and are asking residents to do the same.    

As the weather gets warmer and grass dries out, the likelihood of  wildfire jumps. This summer will be particularly high-risk due to unusually  tall, thick grass crop this spring, according to Cal Fire.    

Cal Fire is hiring and training additional firefighters, and extra  firefighting aircraft will be phased in as the summer progresses.    

Residents are urged to keep their properties free of brush and to  create a 100-foot defensible space around homes and other structures.
