With school closed on Monday because of the nearby fires, all across southern California there have been raging fires fought by a multitude of brave firefighters. The hope is for the many fires along the coast of California to be soon controlled and stopped from burning any more acres of land.

 

  CNN news has reported that “a half dozen fires have collectively scorched nearly 200,000 acres since last week and destroyed 792 structures.” The Thomas Fire has been reportedly fought by over 4,000 firefighters, and has posed a serious concern of safety for California citizens. Numerous mandatory evacuations have been issued by local and county officials, due to houses burning down and poor air quality.

 

The state of California has been said to have “burned itself up.” California’s drought condition remains a significant problem still, and with the dry fall season, ravid fires are not helping the problem either. The fires along the coast have an affect on our community of Santa Maria and Orcutt as well, noted by the poor air quality and ash covering the cities on Monday of December 11, 2017. School was canceled across the OUSD and SMJUHSD as well on the Monday as well.

 

Everyone should look to stay away from direct contact with fires, ash, and poor air quality and obey any precautions/directions given by local officials as well. Stay safe, California.
