California saw its worst wildfire season ever in 2020 and experts are worried that 2021 may be just as bad.
Last year's wildfire season saw more than 367 fires that burned over 4.2 million acres.
Currently, 91 percent of the state is experiencing drought and dry conditions...add in the fact that forecasters say wildfire season is beginning earlier and lasting longer in recent years the two will make for a terrible combination.
Governor Gavin Newsom announced a $536 million funding package to boost fire prevention projects.
This package would go towards hiring additional fire personnel, buying new equipment, building defensible spaces and developing projects that could slow down the fires when they happen.
