    Couldn't possibly agree more. Here in FL, it's exactly the same case with the amount of development we see on coastlines which are consistently battered by hurricanes. These things happen, and they've always happened.

    I used to live in an area where an awful lot of controlled burning was being done. I don't think it's expensive to do. I'm also not sure how effective it is all the time. I can tell you what does pi$$ me off, is when people lose their homes, property, and sometimes their lives in these fires when they are started by people, either through negligence or with intent.

    There are many reports and videos talking about conspiracy, and they are saying that these fires are fabricated for political purposes and other hidden agendas. Is this possible?!

    What do you mean by fabricated? As in they aren't real and didn't occur? Please link some of these articles as I would like to see them. Conspiracists appear to know why they occurred...

    I don't like to post about those Theories, you can search in Google and you will find many videos and articles talking about targeting that area and that the fires are not natural, and it can be a deliberate act, some kind of punishment for certain people for certain reasons.

    It's sad when these theories fabricated from thin air and minds untethered to facts end up taking away thought and energy from the real problems and cause people to waste valuable time and energy to look for magical causes that don't exist.

    While the real problems still exist and continue to put lives in danger.

    Juan Brown is a commercial pilot, trained to be a Fire Retardant Plane pilot before he was offered a commercial airline position, and still maintains connections to the fire suppression world, he did the behind the scenes coverage of the Jumbo Jet Fire Retardant refilling video I posted earlier. He also has done great coverage of other fire related events, and lives not far from the Camp fire region.
