A wildfire is any fire burning out of control in forests, grasslands or brush. All citizens are asked to report such fires immediately.
How to report a wildfire
If you see a wildfire, call 1-800-777-FIRE (3473).
Be prepared to give the dispatcher:
- Your name
- Your telephone number
- The specific location of the fire
- Any other information that might be helpful.
When reporting any emergency, try to be calm and speak clearly.
Wildfires can also be reported to 911 if that service is available in your county.
