An extra firefighter has been added to 180 CDF en- gines in Northern California. Five additional conserva- tion camp crews have been activated and 10 previously closed lookouts have been staffed round the clock. "Fire safety must be every- one's concern," said CDF Di- rector Andrea Tuttle. "CDF is well prepared to respond to fires and is doing so right now. But, we need the pub- lic's help as well, by taking actions to prevent fires in the first place." The CDF cautions that the hot, dry, windy conditions can cause a spark to become a wildfire within seconds. Residents are advised to: Be careful with fire and with any piece of equipment that might throw a spark into dry grass. • Use mowers, weed eaters, and chainsaws only in the cool morning hours. • Comply with any burning restrictions that might be in effect. (Check with local fire authorities when in doubt.) • Clear 10 feet around any Gates open at 1 p.m. for the Fourth of July celebration at the Lassen County Fair- grounds.
