Clear brush before violation notices issued

Disastrous grass and brush fires needlessly destroy homes in San Diego County each year. The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection engine crews will be randomly inspecting structures in their jurisdiction for violation of state and local fire laws.
In rural areas the law requires that brush be cleared at least 100 feet around all structures. Proper clearing around homes and buildings would save most of the homes lost in wildfires. California can’t afford wildfires. Be fire safe, not sorry!
