I’ve been reading a bit the last few days about some of the fires that are burning in California and am just amazed. They too have been in a long-time drought but the thing is that a lot of these fires are naturally burning and we have kept them away for so long that now they are ten times worse than they should be.
I know I wouldn’t want to be living there now.
It seems like the fires are getting worse every year out there as they try to control them. From what I have been reading over at CNN and other sites only one person has died so far because of the different fires, which number in the teens now.
Apparently over 400 square miles have been burned in Southern California and over 300,000 have evacuated San Diego County. President George W. Bush has declared an emergency for seven counties in California as well.
