(Reuters)-According to the US National Weather Service, “fire alarms” were issued late Sunday in some counties in Northern California, suggesting an increased risk of fire.
A fire alert means that the combination of warm temperatures, very low humidity, and strong winds is expected to increase the risk of fire.
The risk of fire increased from Sunday night towards the hills of East Bay and Solano County north. The warning is valid until Monday night.
By Sunday night, California’s utility PG & E (NYSE :), which is still affected by weather-related power outages in the Bay Area, had fewer customers than 8,000.
The power outage began late Saturday, when light rain and heavy fog settled on power lines and equipment that had accumulated dust and debris during a long, dry period. At one point, nearly 29,000 customers were affected, NBC Bay Area reported.
