    Very good! Looks like they took the time to mitigate a lot of very serious risks before bulling the trigger on that one. I'm pleased and impressed.

    Just heard on the news that the state of CA has already spent something like $415 million this year fighting fires. That's crazy!

    The western side of the Sierra national forest and eastern Fresno/kings unit haven't had a big fire since the 96(?) Italian bar fire and before that the 89 powerhouse fire.

    The Courtney fire was a small fire that took a lot of homes. All because someone wanted to burn a rotted deer carcass.
