Camp Fire Fatalities
As reported at yesterday's press briefing, the Butte County Sheriff's Office (BCSO) has received reports of fatalities .e to the Camp Fire. BCSO investigators are still working to confirm the reports. The task is difficult due to the fact that the fire is still active and there are many hazards in areas where fotalities have been reported. On Thursday, November 8, 2018, investigators with the Butte County Sheriff s Office (BCSO) located five fatalities in the area of Edgewood Lone in Paradise. The preliminary investigation revealed that the victims were located in vehicles that were overcome by the Camp Fire. Due to the burn injuries, identificotion could not be immediately made. Autopsies will be conducted to determine the circumstances of the deaths and to begin the identification process. The Butte County Coroner, Office has formed an interagency team to investigate and identify additional fatalities. We understand that many people are very anxious to locate loved ones and we encourage residents to check so feandweltorq, check with family and friends, and if you're still not able to locate loved ones, please contact BCSO at (530)538-7322 to request a welfare check or to file a missing person, report.

This is incredibly sad. The morning news is reporting 44 actually dead. Unfortunately this is not FAKE NEWS, the reality being there may be well over 100 or 200 dead when this is all over.

So where does this leave us? How/where do we move forward? How are these disasters prevented in the future?

There seems to be some consensus in expanding controlled burns as a means for prevention. Hopefully, all leaders, the Trumps, the Browns, the Newsomes will lead in actually implementing whatever changes are necessary, regardless of impacts to get ahead of these destructive fires.

There is some solution here. We just need the leaders with the vision and the courage to resolve this. Sadly, at the moment it's obvious, the leaders we now have are not likely to meet that measure.

      I hope all the BOS who think its ok to advise County Staff to deviate from California Fire Code 4290 are taking a close look at this fire and the rate that it spread. When I read Mike Olivera article in the Enterprise New about his concerns to cut cost to Building Contractors by not enforcing the minimum fire codes I was outraged. This is not what if it burns it is when it burns. I am heart broken for the people who have lost everything in this fire. The question how do we prevent this well one good step is enforce minimum fire codes. Go on Cal Fires web site for instructions on how to clear around your home. There is a old saying GRAZE IT, CUT IT OR WATCH IT BURN. I mean not disrespect to the people who have been effected by the fires I just hope Calaveras can use this as a learning tool and help prevent this from happening again in our community. One house, one small fire can wipe out a whole community.

        If anything we should be one upping fire building code, with roof and exterior sprinklers on all homes.
