Oh My Sand Fire here in California still Only Ten Percent Contained

It has now burned 33 000 acres and destroyed over 200 homes.The heat is not helping anything either . I hope that this is not one of the fires that firemen and homeowners do lose their lives. I also hope that this fall is not going to \be worse than last fall in the number of very serious destructive fires. Last fall they claimed was the worst one in many years. So I hope it rains where its really needed. One original graphic and post by P Hatley copyrighted 2016

@Hatley Seems CA never has a chance to recoup before the Next Bad Thing happens. It's a vicious circle.

yes that would really help now as the fire has caused its own heat which makes it evern harder to put it out.
