The only saving grace is its happening in low population areas. However, the reason for the sparse population is because of all the farm and cattle land. It will devastate many people financially.

Here are some photos from where I live. Temperatures of 90-100 degree, no rain for six months, and you have a tinderbox. These were taken last Thursday and the fires are still burning and getting bigger: Closing in on half of a million acres, so far:

Copius pattern amounts of phrases like “Anyone have”..., “Anybody know?”.... and their variations.

Thoughts?
Any help is appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

I would guess that with low population density that fire service is pretty sparse and mostly volunteer. With wind driven fires about all you can do is try to protect structures and wait for mother nature to let up.

Those big fires are nasty . I read a story about a couple out horse back riding ,they got surrounded by a forest fire . They said good bye to their horses and let their animal instinct take over . The couple laid in a creek bed and was able to survive the fire passing over them . On there way out they actually came across the horses still alive . The way it was worded and described damn near gave me anxiety while reading about . Hopefully everyone stays safe.

One of our own Moto brothers lost almost everything in a fire yesterday, same deal. Brutal.

Wow... ? Yeah, fires are brutal. Went through the big wildfires here in Florida back in '98. Scary stuff!

Yep, fire service is sparse.

Sorry to hear about a moto brother losng everything.

Lots of stories like Mr X said above, people and animals just get surrounded before they know it. They are still going and growing. Hug your loved ones.

It's crazy if this isn't a nationally responded to fire at that size.

We have a history of large wildfires in our area and north of us, and it's definitely a low population area as well. It doesn't seem to take very long for firefighters to be shipped in from all over the country, and oftentimes even from the Southern Hemisphere!

Hopefully there won't be more loss of life or homes. I definitely feel for the folks impacted.

Lost just about everything on Tuesday because some selfish asshole had to smoke a cigarette and tossed their butt out the window of a car doing 75 In To 75 MPH winds. Hang in there anyone else in the line of fire. Olympic MX will be open Sunday even if I still don’t have a place to live. Photo
