This area has a very high risk of wildfire. Open flames are strictly prohibited. Please do not park your car on grassy areas, as the exhaust system could ignite a fire. Numerous fires in the region happen every year. Occasionally, the smoke from a fire will drift in the area. It can be irritating and uncomfortable. If there is a large fire north of Sacramento, this area may be affected. Check with us if you are concerned.
