FILE - In this May 14, 2014 file photo, a helicopter drops fire fighting material over a house as smoke envelopes the area in Carlsbad, Calif. Fire-hardened Southern Californians know that when the Santa Ana winds blow, a wildfire probably isn’t very far behind, the only questions are where and how bad it will be. A new mapping tool developed by the U.S. Forest Service will help homeowners and emergency responders get a better handle on both those questions with detailed color-coded early warning system that will indicate which areas have the highest risk of a devastating blaze during the hot, dry wind events.
