[ARCHIVED] Be watchful for wildfires

As the drought continues, overly-dry conditions increase the danger of grass/wildfire. High winds can spread fires quickly. Be alert. Do not drive through roadblocks and beware of emergency vehicles responding. Smoke blowing across roads can obscure vehicles. If fire or police officials instruct you to evacuate your property act quickly and be aware of escape routes.
There is a burn ban for the entire state.
Do not allow cigarette ashes to escape from your vehicle and do not toss cigarettes out the window.
