    It’s bad when even the McDonald’s burns down.

    Fuck a fire. Hurricane or fire, which one would you prefer?

    This can be cured with prescribed fire.

    I read somewhere during a previous wildfire article that California likes to encourage development in these remote areas due to low land prices. Some sort of anti-discriminatory practice. It's horse shit.

    Looks like most of them completely ignored basic fire defense methods like clear space and a removal of combustible material. I have very little sympathy for someone that lives within a known hazard area and does 0 prep. For the record I don't shed a tear when un-strapped trailers tumble over in Oklahoma, low lying homes get flooded within eyesight of a river, or un-boarded windows get blown in during a hurricane.

    The sprinklers didn't work because the city's water was turned off.













    Vehicles bursting into flames but the tree around them aren't burned



    Arby's must have planted fire retardant trees when the did the landscaping.



    Houses burned to the ground on one side of the street. The other side is untouched. Amazing, miraculous stuff.
