+1 The Camp Fire created issues of spot fires which is the reason so many people died. Winds blew hot embers that started fires into town miles away from the fire line. No "break" would have prevented that.WetEV wrote: ↑Fri Nov 08, 2019 9:19 am"Fire brakes"?
What kind of a fire break would help with a wind driven fire throwing embers a mile or more downwind? And the embers started new fires, due to the dry grass, low humidity, dry fuels.
Power line right of ways need to be maintained to prevent trees from falling on power lines. But again, not factual for the Camp Fire that burned Paradise. It was the power line, not the right of way, that was the apparent cause.
It is really quite pathetic how we place blame after the fact ignoring development that has overtaxed the natural resources of the area for decades. The dramatic change in climate and our continuance to ignore our part in the decimation of this planet.
