They got on this fire fast… same with the fires in SLO a few days ago… good work everyone… this could have been bad…

Cal Fire and the SLO Fire Safe Agency padding the numbers… Fiscal year ended in October and maybe they’re unhappy with the new budget; pretty calm 2023 fire season. Use up the allotted funds then say “give us more or no fires will be fought”. SHADY!
