That is not good mate...fire burning on two fronts means a division of assets...only half as many firefighters to fight each fire. BUGGER

Be safe mate and pass on our prayers and well wishes for safety and minimal loss to anyone you know in the path of the fire.

Cheers, Vince

Used to do gigs with USFS. Used to do prescribed burns to keep things healthy, fuels down, bugs away and prevent giant blowups.

Enviro-dorks stopped all that.

Fires are normal. Giant blowups fed with massive 40 y/o fuel beds aint. Station fire here proved that.

If the boys in green trucks say git, git. Nothing is worth your life. If you live in a fire danger area, HAVE A PLAN AND A BUGOUT BOX.

Please stay safe everyone...

Did I hear correct that another fire was started by lightening and could dwarf the intial blaze started by numnuts firing tracers?

Tad confusing but the first major fire to hit the news, the one nearest my house was named the Dump Fire and was indeed started by tracers.

The next major fire that burned through my parents ground is called the Wood Hollow fire, and was started by theives stealing copper wiring to sell.

The next fire started by lightning is called the Seely fire, on the next ridge over from the Wood Hollow fire.

We have 6 major fires all going at once, with 95,000 total acres burned.

Where are the elk, deer, etc. going? When we had the fires here in TX, the ones with high-game fences lost there game.

Its definitely driving them around, and right during fawning time too which is terrible. Alot of people are seeing critters in small areas the fires missed or back in burned out area (dunno what they will eat).

All the major ones near me are all out. We have some massive ones now out in fairly remote areas burning at 0% containment that are over 90,000 acres... *EACH*.

I'd take a rough guess at 250,000 to 300,000 acres burned total, state wide. We had a massive fire 5 or 7 years ago that burned 650 square miles.
