It may be only April, but fire season has arrived
Tuesday, April 28, 2015 — As the state of California continues to confront one of the worst droughts in history this spring, fire season has already arrived in Northeastern California.
Just last week in Lassen County, firefighters responded to a couple of small suspected lightning-caused wildfires — one off Cheney Creek Road and another near Devil’s Corral — and a wildfire recently burned about 100 acres in Plumas County.
Like it or not, fire season is here.
Residents, ranchers and firefighters alike must endure what Mother Nature throws at us — lightning causes fires, and there’s nothing we can do can do change that.
