These Fires are being set by Terrorists and are an act of terror....

The state of California should be sued...an class action lawsuit against Jerry Brown...

They are creating and wasting money on the creation of a sanctuary state...

the whole thing should not be happening so near cities...

this is a failure of the public amenities which the tax payers are paying for...

instead of wasting money on the stupid immigrants ...you get this and shitty schools and the multitude of other things the money should be spent on....

Get rid of Brown and find a conservative or Cali is doomed...


I will class action the US government and hold every dime from them...

in the 8os I lived in both these areas...Fairfax...SF...Laguna beach...Lido island.... Costa mesa....and didn't see a single fire near a city in 10 years....except the Oakland hills fire....which I think was arson and the blacks burning the rich peoples houses...

Between drought and failure to clear brush, CA for an incident waiting to happen. But then every year they go through this. IMO wrath of God.

This all needs to be advertised better...
"The USA - if it isn't on fire, under water, inhospitably hot, inhospitably cold, blown away by hurricane, sucked away by tornado, shaking your spine out of your body from earthquakes, rife with gun-crime murder because good people are not allowed guns - then it is filled with armed US civilians who don't want you here!"

This has been an announcement on behalf of ICE...

That might stop illegals thinking the place is made of gold..?

"I don't know everything, I know just enough to know that I know nothing - which is just a little more than those who think they know anything!"

California wildfires kill at least 13, more than 100 reported missing in wine country

At least 13 people are dead and more than 100 have been reported missing as explosive, wind-whipped wildfires rage through Northern California's famed wine country, forcing fire crews to race to get the massive blazes under control.

Sonoma County communications director Scott Alonso said family members have been reporting those missing in calls to a hotline in the county. He said it's possible many or most of the missing are safe, but simply can't be reached because of the widespread loss of cell service and other communications outlets.
Stunning video: At least five brush fires swept through Napa, Sonoma, Lake and Mendocino counties, charring nearly 30,000 acres. The inferno has destroyed homes and businesses, and has forced evacuations of thousands of people in California's wine country. Video
California wildfires destroy thousands of structures and vineyards

Cal Fire officials said Tuesday morning 17 wildfires in nine counties have already burned more than 115,000 acres in the past 12 hours, and winds gusting in excess of 50 mph have caused "extreme rates of spread and volatile burning conditions."

Fire officials told Fox News there is zero percent containment on all fires. Some of the largest of the blazes burning were in Napa and Sonoma counties, home to dozens of wineries that attract tourists from around the world. ..."

Fire is so destructive, I feel sorry for people who are burned alive, what a horrifying thing to happen.  I remember when I was a kid in Scouts we went to the firehall to see what they do there.  Our Scout leader was an RCMP officer, he used to take us on patrols so we could watch the motorists slow down hahahaha.  I remember at the fire hall though, there was a volunteer fire fighter I met and he had been burned alive.  It was horrible.

He ended up looking like this.

I would say this gave me a healthy respect for fire.

CA sees these same conditions every year at this time. Hot, dry,
terrible winds. As our local weather guy said, coupled with the
pressure conditions Sunday evening, it was "as bad as it gets." *
This year we also have tons of extra fuel thanks to our record
preceding rainy season.

Where I am 40-60 miles south the smoke filled homes and it
was just as windy and hot here all night Sunday. The smoky
conditions have eased since then but are still with us. We're
lucky firestorms didn't crop up for us.

The causes are still unknown but with these calamitous conditions
the fires could have easily sparked from grass fires (as in the case
of the '91 Oakland hills firestorm) or downed power lines.

The damage that has been visited on the North Bay is devastating.

*Edit - one bright spot perhaps, he did say we might not see a
similar confluence of conditions for another 50 years.

But temps are way down and humidity way up overall, red flag
warning expired. Not much in the way of breezes at all right
now. Fog may even get into some of the inland locations
