    Anyone here endangered from these California wildfires? 100's of homes engulfed....

    Colorado as well
    Jesper Joergensen, 52, is suspected of starting the fire...........
    Sad.............

    Video in link>>Hundreds of homes imperiled as California fire spreads








    A wildfire in Northern California swelled on Tuesday, July 3, as firefighters battled the blaze that threatened hundreds of homes and other structures, sending thick black smoke across the San Francisco Bay Area.





    In this file photo taken on July 1, 2018 firefighters scramble to control flames surrounding a fire truck as the Pawnee fire jumps across highway 20 near Clearlake Oaks, California. (AFP)



    The County Fire, which broke out on Saturday afternoon in rural Yolo County, west of Sacramento, blackened more than 70,000 acres (28,800 hectares) of grass, brush and dense scrub oak. That was 17 percent more than the 60,000 acres (24,280 hectares) it had burned as of late Monday (July 2).



    In Colorado, firefighters faced another day of hot temperatures, low humidity and gusting winds as they battled eight major blazes which have torched over 140,000 acres in the drought-stricken state.



    The largest wildfire, the Spring Fire burning in southern Colorado, grew by 18,000 acres overnight, ballooning to nearly 79,000 acres. It has destroyed at least 104 homes, forced the evacuations of several small communities, and closed a key mountain-pass road. That fire was just 5 percent contained.



    Danish national Jesper Joergensen, 52, is suspected of starting the fire and is being held on first-degree arson charges. He is in the country illegally and may face deportation, police said.
    The United States is in the midst of an unusually active fire season, with the risk significantly above normal for many western states, according to federal forecasters

    Both California and Colorado are having insane fires. It's going to get worst as the temps are going up in the 90s in the coming weeks.

    I drove south of the fire on my way up to Tahoe for the holiday and the ashes and smoke
    are ridiculous.
    Dry as a bone and the fires are stupid huge. They were spreading 1000 acres an hour.
    One fellow had his hose melt and was using buckets until the neighbor tossed over her hose.
    Guy credits the neighbor for saving his house.

    There is no punishment harsh enough for these firestarters.

    Gamblers can NOT afford big houses in the country. They share an apartment in a bad part of town. Maybe rent a room somewhere. 40 years of this shit. I know. I can not wait for Nats Rsox to start. 11am.
