June is the Start of Fire Season
July 11, 2017

June is the start of fire season, which typically extends into October. California's climate dries out during the summer, especially in lower elevations where temperatures continue to rise and vegetation turns into fuel sources for fast-moving flames. Increasing heat and more frequent drought will likely make summer fires more common. Please see the attached flyers for tips and reminders on how handle exposure to wildfire smoke. County officials will continue to monitor air quality in Sutter County and provide updates as needed. For current information, go to the Feather River Air Quality Management District at or check the Sutter County and Sutter County Public Health Facebook pages.
