Every year they tell us fire season is high. Too much rain lead to excessive dry fuels. Not enough rain, too dry conditions. Fortunately we enjoy perpetual damp forest conditions assisted by the fog lingering on the coastal hills that creeps in at night lowering the dew point. We may have our share of dry days, but not desert conditions similar so southern Ca. Teach fire safety and prevention but avoid the falling sky anologies.
On a hot, dry day with winds blowing from the East a fire started by a cigarette thrown from a car on 280 could duplicate the Oakland Hills fire and run to the skyline ridge line in a few hours. The Eastern slope of skyline gets very little moisture from fog and certainly not enough to increase the moisture content of dried seasonal grasses and brush.
