SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Gov. Gavin Newsom is weighing in on the debate to restrict home building in high-fire-risk areas.

Newsom said he doesn’t want to block building near forested areas because he doesn’t want to take away land-use planning from local governments.

After the Camp Fire, California’s former top fire official Ken Pilmott suggested the opposite.

Pilmott said the state should consider blocking construction in high-risk areas.
