On Monday night in Santa Ana, OCFA firefighters responded swiftly to a reported single palm tree on fire.

The firefighters found more than was expected: multiple palms ablaze, causing significant embers cast in the windy night. The situation escalated with cars involved and a nearby hotel’s roof at risk.

Thanks to the tactical expertise and swift action of the firefighters, the hotel was saved, and the fires quelled.

The rapid response prevented a potentially larger incident. This serves as a reminder that even “routine” tree fires can turn severe, especially in strong winds.
