    At least the state parks, although strapped of funds, are attempting to prevent the next big fire by removing some of the fuel that is so prolific since the last fires. Shame on all you "rich" land owners in SD county back country that ignore the many acres of dead and live fuel building up on your precious land. All you need is wind, as we just saw in Reno, and some dry conditions and its:

    "De Ja Vous all over again!"

    When will you ever learn?

    Perhaps Cal Fire ought to enforce some "foilage removal" laws or the county ought to highly tax those who let their lands get covered with fuel!
