East County Wildfire & Emergency Alerts

January 26, 2018 (San Diego) -- The National Weather Service has issued a red flag warning due to high fire danger.  The warning is in effect from Saturday evening through Monday afternoon for all mountains and valleys across Southern California.

Gusty Santa Ana winds, low humidity and temperatures west of the mountains that could be 10 to 22 degrees above normal all contribute to the elevated risk risk.

The NWS advises residents to avoid use of power tools, don't park or drive on dry brush, properly discard cigarettes, obey burn bans and avoid use of open flames.  Report any sightings of smoke or flames by calling 911.
