Fairgrounds serving in essential supporting role in ongoing wildfire fight

CDFA’s deputy secretary overseeing fairs, Michael Flores (in light blue shirt), visiting with a fire crew at the Siskiyou Golden Fairgrounds in Yreka, which is one of seven fairgrounds in Northern California that have served as base camps this year in the ongoing spate of wildfires.
