The city of Berkeley sent out a bulletin Sunday warning the community of higher fire risk in the Berkeley Hills.

The bulletin cites a Red Flag warning issued by the National Weather Service, which predicts gusty offshore winds and dry conditions amplifying the risk of rapid-spreading fires in the East Bay. The weather conditions are forecasted to last from Oct. 10 to Oct. 12 at 5 p.m. 

The highest risk of fire in Berkeley is projected to be during daytime hours today, according to the bulletin. 

Residents are reminded to use extreme caution when operating heat sources and prepare for potential evacuations in the case of a fire.

“Wildfires are now more frequent, destructive, and fast-moving than ever,” the bulletin reads. “Berkeley residents must change how we prepare and respond.”
