I'm considering a vacation home in Lake Arrowhead. The wildfires in the area seem concerning.

Do they ever destroy homes, or are they mostly in inaccessible / wilderness areas?

How often is power out because of high winds / fire?

How often are there evacuations?

Any other information / suggestions you have on Lake Arrowhead, e.g. areas that are particularly good or bad to have a home, would be appreciated.

As far as fires go, this article is from last year:

When it comes to the risk of forest fire in Southern California, Richard Minnich, a fire ecologist at UC Riverside, said he is most concerned about communities that haven’t burned since the 19th century: Big Bear Lake and Lake Arrowhead in the eastern San Bernardino Mountains, and the isolated, mile-high community of Idyllwild.

These areas, he said, have hundreds of trees per acre with trunks more than 4 inches in diameter and an under-story of young conifers and brush. By way of comparison, he said, a healthy, safer forest has about 13 such trees per acre.
