    I certainly wasn't trying to shift it............but I wanted to ask people living there about the issue of leaving a powder keg alone instead of taking measures to prevent the spread of fires.

    Environmentalists have infiltrated the resource management departments and this is the result.

    No one voted for these outlandish regulations. The People have little or no power over draconian enviornmental regulations. Sorry but I don't mean to derail the thread but these deaths fall squarely on idiotic over-regulation. There was no need for destruction and death form a wildfire on Federal land that spread to populated areas.

    Part of me wants to help, while another part says they need to learn.

    California is one of the most fucked up states in this country.

    Doing away with common sense ..........common sense requires taking actions to burn off tender boxes...........building fire breaks to prevent the spread........it is common here and prevents any fire from spreading too far...........It is extremely wet here........so our chances of fire are far less.........but it is still done to prevent an uncontrolled fire.

    You aren't whom I am aiming this blog too. I wish you a long and happy life. Those urban interlopers that move specifically to such communities because they want to escape urban crime and illegal aliens, then drive up the housing costs, and then have the nerve to complain about how unfair life is. I can't help but laugh at them. They deserve their fate.

    Housemate just got home from work. He said some people stopped in that were evacuated from Redding and are staying with their daughter. They said before they could get out of there, they could hear propane tanks exploding and the roar of the fire was so loud it sounded like a tornado and hurricane all rolled into one..but HOT, like a volcano. Air was so bad, it was like fog.

    You seem to cast to large of a net and have limited understanding of the problem. Just sayin.

    Fire Safety Laws - Ready For Wildfire
    California law requires that homeowners in SRA clear out flammable materials such as brush or vegetation around their buildings to 100 feet (or the property line) to create a defensible space buffer. This helps halt the progress of an approaching wildfire and keeps firefighters safe while they defend your home.

    The law also requires new homes to be constructed with fire-resistant materials. By building your home with materials like fire-resistant roofing, enclosed eaves and dual-paned windows, you are hardening your home and giving it a fighting chance to survive a wildfire.
