Blame it on The Rain
According to the San Diego Tribune, the heavy rainfall we received this past year has resulted in extensive vegetation growth that will eventually dry out and turn into fuel for wildfires.
There is a dilemma about what to do regarding people who live in fire zones. An analysis by the Los Angeles Times showed there are 1.1 million structures in the state's highest-risk fire areas. San Diego is # 2 behind Los Angeles with 88,000 buildings in the highest-risk fire areas.
“We’re going to continue to have fires,” CAL FIRE Deputy Chief David Nissen told Smith. “They’re going to be a part of people’s lives in Southern California and California generally. It’s what we do to adjust to minimize risk.”
Hopefully no homes or offices are damaged by fires this year, but it is inevitable that the smoke and soot from wildfires will reach all corners of the county.
If you have a strong smell of smoke or soot in your home it is usually covered by your homeowners or renters insurance to have your home and belongings cleaned and deodorized from top to bottom.
