You can help my elderly neighbors who lost everything here... This video is a timeline showing the explosion of a wildfire that traveled miles and burned well over 100,000 acres but stopped 100' short of my house!

  • Glad to see you safe. It goes to show u controlled burns, and clearing of brush is very important.

  • i remember driving home from work, the whole store was buzzing after a co worker left cause she was in the red. I remember driving, the sky was clear and as i got closer it started turning grey and purple, then red. It was terrifying, like a large hand just about to come down on the land. Thankfully our street was spared.

  • A good respirator mask has to be worn to prevent lung damage later on in life. The smoke is toxic from everything burning including plastics.

  • WATCH RFB VIDEOS SHOWING DEW - DIRECTED ENERGY WEAPONS. Read AGENDA 21 - Sustainable Development. The U.S. of Terrorist America has one goal: DEPOPULATION. I live on the east coast, preparing for hurricanes, tornadoes - the deepest, darkest winter. I'm sure many will die. Terrorist America had planned 9-11 for decades, killed thousands, diseased thousands more from all the rubble it created to fulfill their goal of war. The Deep State (the dirty bloodlines: Rothschild, Rockefeller, Carnegie, Dupont, Clinton, Bush, Kissinger, etc) is fulfilling their goal again using bioengineering and DEW.

  • “Bahá'í Scriptures teach that, as trustees of the planet's vast resources and biological diversity, humanity must seek to protect the "heritage [of] future generations;" see in nature a reflection of the divine; approach the earth, the source of material bounties, with humility; temper its actions with moderation; and be guided by the fundamental spiritual truth of our age, the oneness of humanity. The speed and facility with which we establish a sustainable pattern of life will depend, in the final analysis, on the extent to which we are willing to be transformed, through the love of God and obedience to His Laws, into constructive forces in the process of creating an ever-advancing civilization” (The Baha'i International Community, 1995 Apr 06, Conservation and Sustainable)

  • if you had animals i HOPE YOU LET THEM LOOSE. I also wonder why they don't make 2 lanes of traffic flowing out. very rarely does a vehicle need to be heading in towards fire, but if rescue had to get by just move over. People need to get our os there ASAP and that one lane isn't smart, If there were two lines heading out, you could always make room for emergency vehicles, god bless them.

  • FYI ...Hope I have this correct the California fires are a annual past event 2019 (awareness) the 2020 West Coast California fires are on a accelerated level plus to 2019 annual ....further historical perspective the Tillamook fires 1933 annual ......Oregon and California have a tenuous relationship with the forest and topography which is and can be abused, ignored, neglected, indifference, and bad actors may participate. State(primarily) Federal, and individuals have gone unchecked for this catastrophe, event, issue. ..The Oregon state authorities (top down) Governor Brown , state fire marshal down to the local and individual citizens have reaped a whirlwind . California' pathetic and poor state leadership has crossed and jump state line just like the fire.

Trees down everywhere my power was out for 12 days in this high heat and humidity it was miserable to go outside and work for a while then come inside where it wasn't much cooler for 2 weeks I don't think I ever got to a comfortable temperature yet I think I would still chose to go through a hurricane like Laura than a fire

  • The timber industry I worked in for years had always said the woods were gonna burn if the two sides for and against couldn't come together for the betterment of our environment:( Welcome to the (Unnecessary) Mega Fire Generation! By Del Albright, Fire Chief (retired) 25-30 years ago, a 10,000 - 15,000-acre fire was a huge conflagration. Now we are experiencing 100,000 - 400,000-acre fires regularly. I would like to offer an explanation based on over 30 years of government service including 26 years with the fire service, as well as beginning my fire career with a Master’s Degree based on Prescribed Burning. NO! It is not just global warming (climate change). NO! It is not understaffed or ill-trained firefighters. NO! It is not Mamma Nature getting even with our urban sprawl. NO! It is not careless campers or hunters. NO! It is not kids with matches. (NO! It is not just arson committed by antifa and BLM arsonists)* YES! It is a combination of many things but more importantly, it is the LACK of forest/brushland/grassland management caused by wacko, radical enviro groups imposing excessive regulations, and restrictions on our ability to keep the west safe from wildfire. Here are the key takeaways from this article: · The lack of controlled burning/prescribed fire is directly responsible for the huge build-ups of flammable fuels. · The end of maintaining fire breaks (roads) in forested areas leaves firefighters with inadequate access. · The end of logging and good timber management as we used to know it is directly responsible for forests that are now tinderboxes. Let us take a deeper look at these reasons. CONTROLLED BURNS: Going back to Native Americans in America, controlled burning (later called Prescribed Fire) have saved the west from huge conflagrations. By burning large brush fields and using fire to thin brush in the forest, we kept the big boomers at bay. We had programs designed to reduce “chaparral” in the west, thus limiting the ability for fires to get ragingly out of control. In the early days of settling the west, ranchers regularly burned brush fields to make way for grazing and wildlife habitat. This entire program of controlled or prescribed fire is a near thing of the past. ROADS/FIRE BREAKS: When I started with the fire service in the 1970’s we had regularly scheduled building, repairing, cleaning, and maintaining fire breaks around rural housing areas and developments. We kept fire roads cleared and usable for large fire equipment. We had access to remote areas which allowed us to attack fires when they were small. Roads provided a place to start a safe backfire. Oh, backfires! Another art nearly lost today due to liability and excessive oversight by the media and radical enviro groups who have political power. LOGGING/TIMBER MANAGEMENT: If you live in the Pacific Northwest, you probably remember sawmills. They are all gone for the most part because the radical environmental rules have made logging a financial nightmare. You wonder why wood is so expensive these days? We cannot log; that’s why. Yes, there are still a few holdouts logging here and there. But the feds are hampered by so many regulations and restrictions that our timber stands either get bug infested or succumb to wildfires. We used to thin forest stands regularly - fire crews, inmate crews, machines that munch up underbrush, and yes, even pesticides to keep the forests healthy. Now, you can pick about any state in the west with timber and you see more bug-killed trees than live ones! In our western grasslands, the lack of proactive landscape management in desert states has resulted in vast acreages dominated by a fire cycle that is ruining wildlife habitat and causing bigger and more damaging conflagrations. This invasive species needs to be managed or these western deserts will never be the same - nor will our wildlife species. In timber areas, for the most part, we no longer control pests and bugs; we no longer do any substantial thinning of the underbrush; logging is kaput, and forest management is a façade. It is not the fault of our public land managers; it is the imposition of radical regulation. It is politics. SUMMARY: Public land management is no longer based on science but rather politics. The same goes for wildlife management. Radical enviro groups lobby politicians (and raise untold dollars in support) to STOP all the things that will make our forests, brushlands, and deserts safe and healthy. It is ironic (and pathetic) because for all their efforts to “save the world” they are destroying our world, piece by piece. To see fires in California reach half a million acres is beyond belief! What can we do? We must STOP the silliness and over-regulation and allow sound public land management, never forgetting that public lands are FOR the public. Help good politicians get elected and stay in office. Recall bad politicians. Do everything in your power to negate, refute, or STOP the radical movement that has stagnated management of our resources. * added by me to reflect existential reality. SOME were started by antifa and BLM anarchal arsonists.

  • Glad your house was still there but did you ever ask how a fire can be so discriminate? The trees look unscathed. How does this happen? Wouldn't it stand to reason the trees would have been basically consumed? That they would carry the fire to the structures? How does a fire just stop? I live in CA Northern Sierras and it is so smoky right now my stomach is sick. My throat is sore and my lungs feel congested. I am not close to any fires that I know of. The smoke just comes in and leaves. Sometimes you can see blue sky sometimes not. The lung damage alone will be devastating. I don't get how smokers can smoke with all the smoke in the air. smdh

  • THE GREATEST MAN IN HISTORY Jesus had no servants, yet they called Him Master.Had no degree, yet they called Him Teacher.Had no medicines, yet they called Him Healer.He had no army, yet kings feared Him.He won no military battles, yet He conquered the world. He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him. He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today. I feel honored to serve such a Leader who loves us! If you believe in God and in Jesus Christ His Son, share this good news with all your family and friends. Who is Jesus? In chemistry, He turned water to wine. In biology, He was born without the normal conception; In physics, He disapproved the law of gravity when He ascended into heaven; In economics, He disapproved the law of diminishing return by feeding 5000 men with two fishes & 5 loaves of bread; In medicine, He cured the sick and the blind without administering a singledose of drugs; In history, He is the beginning and the end; In government, He said that he shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Prince of Peace; In religion, He said no one comes to the Father except through Him; So? Who is He? He is Jesus!
