The Los Angeles County Fire Department Forestry Division conducts sampling approximately every two weeks and posts the results online. LFM was last measured on May 15 and is currently 91%, a reduction of approximately 7% since it was last measured. LFM is currently about the critical marker, however, it is approximately 35% lower than this time last year.
