We have a short memory when it comes to these fires. Twenty six years ago the complex fire put the fear of God in this community and we all said lets not have this happen again. Then the threat of a law suit from the environmental community stopped the forest management necessary to stop catastrophic forest fires. The ranchers lost their permits to put cattle in the forest to graze, the loggers had their sales canceled and the NFS didn't reach their goal. The environmentalist did.
I wonder how many people are saying, WOW!!!!, I'm sure glad the cattle were out there eating all that grass, now we don't have to worry about the fire spreading.
