As summer temperatures continue to rise in California, firefighting crews are fighting back blazes throughout the state.
In Northern California, there are two large fires: one in Yolo County and another in Lake County. Meanwhile, firefighters have been contending with smaller flare ups in Southern California while anticipating the heat to rise to triple digits in the coming weekend.
We check in on the wildfire situation throughout the state and talk what to expect in the next summer months, as well as advice on prevention and how wildfires are impacting power lines.
