Sonoma County is inspecting homes and properties to make sure that owners have cleared weeds and cut overgrown grass on their lots. This is the first time Sonoma County is doing defensible space inspections in partnership with local fire districts to make sure that firefighters can best protect homes from wildfires.  Sonoma County Fire Marshall James Williams told the board of supervisors on Tuesday that about half of the properties inspected by officials so far are out of compliance with the county’s regulations. KRCB’s Adia White took a walk through one neighborhood with James Williams when inspections first started in June. She has more on what out of compliance looks like.
