Preparations made by property owners before a fire can greatly aid in fire suppression efforts. In fact, there have been incidents reported in other areas where a re-burn occured. This was due to winds coming up a couple days after the fire had been extinguished, carrying embers to areas containing dried out vegetation. And with the very dry spring we just had, the need to clear brush and overgrown vegetation from individual properties becomes even more imperative. Please do your part by removing weeds, leaves, and other highly- flammable brush from the perimeter of your home. The Brisbane Fire Dept. and North County Fire recommend you do so for up to 100 ft. around your property. If you have any questions regarding weed abatement issues, please call Elizabeth Solis at the Fire Dept. at 468-7190.

San Bruno Mtn. Fire Update
With there still being some smoke coming out of Buckeye Canyon, it is advised for residents to remain indoors as much as possible, taking into consideration the health effects of smoke. A few spots are still smoldering on the Mountain, but a CalFire engine (E1765) is still on-site, and will remain until those spots have become completely extinguished.
