No Fire Reporting
Posted on: 2020-02-26 14:25:24   By: Anonymous
 
There was a fire yesterday on Dogtown/San Domingo Rd.
I have noticed local fire reporting is missing many times, why?
If the Pine Tree is " The Celebrated News of Calaveras County and Beyond" where is it? Fire News seems to be not important. Sad.

From My Motherlode News-

Update at 3:30 p.m.: CAL Fire reports that crews have stopped the forward progress of a 7-acre grass fire burning along Dogtown Road near San Domingo Road, east of Highway 49. The cause of the fire is still under investigation. Crews will remain on scene working towards full containment and mopping up for the next couple of hours.

I hope with the drought and fires season upon us TPT will have fire news as it had in times past. John?

    We take fire coverage seriously, we also want fire coverage to be meaningful as fire seasons are long and getting longer. Typically as soon as Calfire suspends burning it is time to get into immediate and constant fire coverage.

    The danger of over reporting early season fires is that it can desensitize us to the severity of fires. There are times for example from late July through November were moisture levels drop to low enough levels that fires can become catastrophic and increasingly difficult to extinguish.

    While all fires are dangerous and can cause damage treating early season lower elevation grass fires as having the same potential for catastrophe damage as later season, higher elevation, high fuel load fires can actually be a disservice.

    We watch the early season fires closely and as soon as we have a lower level grass fire that becomes a 100 acre plus runner then fire season has arrived and we all need to be on our toes

      Disagree. We should be informed of any fires in our area. Rather than desensitizing, it might show how easily it happens and vigilance needed from all residents.

      John, I respectfully disagree. Fires like cancer do not use calendars.
      All fire permits must be cancelled NOW.
      Too many will burn until fires are banned. Cal Fire is negligent in assessing fire danger levels when we are in drought conditions as we are now.
      If a fire would start in a canyon in the lower foothills such as the Butte fire did, it will run up the canyon wall and become that 100 acre fire mentioned in a matter of
      minutes.

      I believe local fires in the lower foothills are just as important as in forest areas., showing a bit of prejudice eh? I happen to live in the burned out area of the Butte fire, our area is just as precious to us as the forested areas. I have always thought that having heavily developed areas such as Arnold is ludicrous as the Camp fire showed all too well. Crown fires in developed areas , are a recipe for disaster. All the needle raking you do is useless with winds and crown fires, the sad truth.

      I live in mixed grass range/oak with some Pine. It doesn't have a thick under story , I keep the required clearances, and irrigate surrounding the home. I also keep clearances around the solar array, sheds, barn. The Cal Fire strike team was here for the Butte fire , seeing I had done my work, this place was defensible.

      It's an early fire season this year, giving a heads up to the readers is more important in my mind than wine tourism. Regards.

        Ok, I probably should have stated it differently. Of course we believe fires should be reported immediately. What we tried to say is that a grass fire at hwy 4 and Milton road in April probably won't destroy 500 homes like a fire in mazanita could in October

      You read it here folks.

      Fires in our county are not newsworthy events.

      Looks like there has already been a 100 acre fire in Feb.

    I think the trucks come all the way from the higher parts of Amador County since the mill in Martell has closed down. Then they have to drive all the way up to Standard I believe. That's a lot of driving for one trip. I think a lot of times these drivers don't check to see if their logs are strapped down tight enough and if they're loose, all it takes is one good swing of a turn on these curvy roads to cause something like that There could be quite a few other reasons why this incident happened. Who knows?

Every county should have at least one lumber mill. The raw material is having to be trucked too far on small winding roads.
