Are there currently wildfires in California?

Active wildfires burning in Butte (Camp Fire) and Los Angeles (Woolsey Fire) counties have required resident evacuations and may be affecting air quality in surrounding communities.

Due to extremely dry and windy weather conditions, CalFire has issued a Red Flag Warning for the next several days while fire danger remains high.

Is it safe for visitors to travel to California during wildfire season?

California is a large state and wildfires in one location typically have no impact outside a limited area. In fact, a vast majority of the Golden State is currently unaffected by fires. Visit California’s first concern is always the safety and well-being of California residents and visitors, so we recommend that visitors who are planning a trip to California check out www.visitcalifornia.com and contact their hotel and local convention and visitors bureau for all pertinent updates.

Are there any areas of the state travelers should avoid, or alternative routes to consider when traveling across the state?

Please visit the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) website for current information on travel and safety conditions.
