The threat of wildfires is often one of the biggest concerns for residents when new housing developments are built.
One new development in Ramona has been built with fire safety in mind.
All new housing developments must follow strict guidelines at both the state and local levels.
Developers at Willow Ridge Estates worked with both Cal Fire and the San Diego County Fire Authority to make sure they have enough fire hydrants and a way for fire engines to easily get in and out. Although the development is in a more populated part of Ramona, it’s in an area that is especially prone to wildfires.
Both the 2003 and 2007 fires tore through the area.
