Thank you Sierra Club! Your generous donations to legal funds suing to block timber sales and forest management over the last 50 years contributed to this death

      What this actually has to do with timber sales I don't know. I do know the national forests in SoCal have next to zero timber production.

      What I do know is this fire was started as a gender reveal stunt involving an incendiary device. Now that the fire has caused a death I hope those responsible for the gender reveal prank are arrested, tried, and given at least 5-10 years in prison. Seriously gender challenged persons, we don't give a damn, get over yourself!

        The comment on Sierra Club responsible on this fire is a stretch. The author was correct in saying the Sierra Club's policies are why most of the Sierra Nevadas have burned in the last decade. Look at the Rim fire. The devastation from that was completely avoidable

      You are correct on this fire but not the majority of them.

    When the Rim Fire is mentioned one cant help but recall that the Forest Service ALLOWED it to burn prior to any action taken. With the head of steam and the head start it’s tough to get a handle on it. Thus The Rim Fire!
