(CNN)It's one word the National Weather Service in Los Angeles doesn't want Southern California residents to overlook -- extreme.

As in, this isn't just another red flag warning -- meaning winds, temperatures and humidity are ripe for fire danger. It's an extreme red flag warning.
The weather service in using the term for the first time to convey that the fire conditions expected this week "have not been seen in recent memory."
Hurricane-force winds -- the kinds that knock down power lines and trees -- are expected to blow across bone-dry vegetation on Wednesday, and the weather service is warning there is a danger of very rapid fire spread.

Florida Brush Fire Destroys More than 3,500 Rental Cars at Airport Near Fort Myers
By Jan Wesner Childs  11 hours ago   weather.com


At a Glance

Smoke could be seen up to 20 miles away.

Florida had record heat and low rainfall in March.

Every county in the state is at either moderate or high risk for fires.


More than 3,500 cars were damaged or destroyed in a brush fire that raced through a grassy area near an airport in southwest Florida on Friday.

Plumes of thick black smoke could be seen up to 20 miles away. Officials said the cause of the fire wasn't known, but the blaze was likely fueled by dry conditions and record heat.

The fire happened in an overflow parking area for rental cars at Southwest Florida International Airport near Fort Myers in Lee County. The county and much of the Florida peninsula are experiencing moderate drought conditions, according to the United States Drought Monitor.

Some 65 wildfires were active across the state as of Sunday morning, and every county in the state was at either moderate or high risk for fire, according to the Florida Forest Service.

October through May is Florida's normal dry season, but this year is drier than usual due to low rainfall and record-high temperatures.

The Florida Fire Service said the fire was 95% contained Friday night but crews would remain on the scene Saturday.

Plumes of black smoke from the fire could be seen up to 20 miles away, WINK-TV reported, and crews from several agencies responded to fight the fire both from the ground and the air.

The road to the airport was closed Friday, and travelers were being shuttled in from outside parking lots. The Terminal Access Road reopened at 11 p.m. Friday, according to Vicki Moreland, communications director for the airport.

Those who live in any area named Santa Rosa might want to watch out:

Here's a video once again of trees standing green and tall in Florida, while houses are reduced to powder after the latest "forest fire"...

Wonder if the locals there are questioning this as it seems impossible that a "forest fire" would/could be so selective.
