Fast Facts from Cal Fire

  1. The Thomas Fire in December 2017 in Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties was the largest wildfire in California history. It burned on 281,893 acres and damaged 1,063 structures. 
  2. The Tubbs Fire in October 2017 in Sonoma County was the most destructive wildfire in California history. It destroyed 5,642 structures and led to 22 deaths total. 
  3. Intense Santa Ana winds and years of heatwaves dried out vegetation, making California extremely vulnerable to quickly spreading wildfires caused by human related cause and electrical accidents. 
  4. The estimated cost of suppression and recovery from the California 2017 wildfire season is estimated at $180 billion, which includes potential revenue to the wine industry and small businesses lost by the fires and debris flow.
