This was a hot spot we put down with our neighbor’s and our improvised water trucks. No real danger now, but all of these spots will flare up from time to time and some will burn into the winter. They are no danger if a strong wind doesn’t pick up, in which case they will throw sparks potentially starting another fire.
In my mind I am still having a difficult time grasping their concept of “fighting” fires. When you fight you have to attack not watch your opponent. I do understand that there is much I don’t know, BUT there is one thing I DO know. It is this: If you put the fire out there will be nothing to talk about. Wildfire is not a philosophical discussion, it is not solved with meetings, meetings, and more meetings, it is not something that we need to watch nor study. You grab your chain saw, your Pulaski, your shovel and you go PUT IT OUT! Then you don’t have to worry about “what it is going to do” because it is out.
