To help track the fire and provide perspective on how close the fire is to California’s flower farms, the California Cut Flower Commission (CCFC) has created an online map to help locate farms in relationship to the fire.

California’s Flower Farmers Survive Recent Wildfires

Wildfires in Southern California threatened the state’s flower production regions. The Thomas Fire in Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties continues to burn near flower farms in the Carpinteria Valley, just south of Santa Barbara. The Lilac Fire in San Diego County near flower farms in Oceanside and Fallbrook is almost 95 percent contained.

At this time, there has not been any reported losses of flower farms or flower production due to these wildfires.
