Why don’t you report on the causes of fire?

  • Updated

Our primary objective is reporting on fire activity and not cause. This is so people can have fast and accurate information in case the fire will impact them. Fire causes are often picked up official law enforcement agencies (which includes CALFIRE) with information not available to the public until the investigation is completed. This could be days, months or even years after the event has concluded. We would recommend you contact the agency in charge for additional information on specific fire causes for events you are interested in.
