Fire season officially starts today. We've already had a brushfire in Terrebonne last week, that gave us a hint of what's ahead this season. Kate Lighthall with Project Wildfire looks ahead to what we can expect. “The thing is in an average season we have 450 fires that burn between 345,000 and 50,000 acres in an average year.” Lighthall recommends people make sure there's a defensible space around your home to prevent your home from being an easy target. It's advised people clear debris, weeds and brush 30 feet from your home.
