"Slide Fire" Fighters Halt Spread of Fire

I am humbled by the brave Firefighters who (for the 2nd time this year) potentially saved us from another direct loss! This time, they quickly extinguished fires which were making their way over the mountain-range in Arrowhead... See, I told you yesterday that they would save us! :)

Adam Housley reports: Wednesday in Arrowhead
"We can see the lights of the inland empire. The twinkle of lights and grid-like necklace of yellow should always be clear from this vantage point, but at this early in the morning, 1:30 a.m., it’s the first time there’s been no smoke cover since we’ve arrived...
Up the hill, there’s more good news. We stop at a fire station, where some crews are sacked out in sleeping bags on the front lawn, finally getting some much needed sleep. Here we talk with a forest ranger assigned to this area of national forest...(the most populated in the country)

Arrowhead fire: Some were less fortunate, but
Arnold Schwarzenegger reduced the magnitude of these fires!
...He tells me there are no containment numbers on the so-called ‘Slide Fire’, but he is very confident this morning. Two fires burning up here are both being knocked down with incredible fervor. The Santa Ana winds have been gone now for two days, and that has allowed for a strong aerial attack and great work by firefighters on the ground." read more

And check this out! As the EPA laws prohibiting controlled brush burning, actually resulted in tinder-box conditions; they issue a statement which (instead of condemning known ARSONISTS)...They try to turn this all around:
Don't Let Bush Burn California #
"While Bush is attempting to score compassion points with the people of California, let's tell him not to burn Californians by blocking their duly enacted laws. The EPA must allow the state's Pavley, or "Clean Cars" fuel emission standards to go forward."
Something tells me the EPA should complain to the ARSONISTS who have violated their brush burning prohibition! This is such a familiar theme in the World today; and NOT HELPFUL, as many try to pick up the pieces of their lives...
