USFS Chose Not to Suppress the Tamarack Fire

Markleeville, CA...From the USFS on July 10th..."The #TamarackFire burning in the Mokelumne wilderness was ignited July 4 from lightning. The tactical management decision is not to insert fire crews due to safety concerns, however, this is not an unresponsive approach. Smoke might be visible to Pacific Crest Trail hikers but the .25 acre fire is surrounded by granite rocks, a small lake and sparse fuels. Fire poses no threat to the public, infrastructure or resource values." July 10th .25 acre. July 19th 23,078 Acres & Markleeville area burned.

    PG&E Starts Dixie Fire
    Posted on: 2021-07-19 12:14:04   By: Anonymous
     
    Once again, the cheap policy of PG&E refusing to have adequate clearances from power lines started another fire.
    When will PG&E provide safe clearances of it's power lines?
    The state needs to step in, force PG&E to clear it's right-of-ways.
    KCRA-

    PG&E said in a report Sunday to the California Public Utilities Commission that a repair man responding to a circuit outage on July 13 spotted blown fuses in a conductor atop a pole, a tree leaning into the conductor and fire at the base of the tree.

        Putting Fire back in the ecosystem is needed. But HTF should not of managed for resource benefit at this time of year’ USFS as a whole is not reasonable for the FMO actions that were placed on the Tamarack Fire. This is going to be a long season, and stupidity like this is unexceptionable. HTF actions need to be punished. As it goes’ they mess up and move up! Stepping down from the soap box-

      This fire was caused by lightening on July 4th and the US Forestry chose to let it smoulder. Did you even read the article PineTree posted?

      Well there we have it folks. Next time you're next to granite rocks, a small lake, and sparse fuels, don't bother or worry about putting your campfire out. Right Forest Service?

    There sure are a lot of armchair fire fighters out there. Never get your clothes dirty or put your foolish lives in danger. Why are you all not part of a fire suppression task force? I mean, you'd have to put some clothes on and have to go outside but y'all are tough and can handle it, right? COWARDS AND FOOLS YOU ARE!

      It was .25 acre on July 10th. Now its 40000. I love firefighters, my friends are firefighters.

      The problem is the idiot that chose not to dose it at .25 acres. That person ruined lives, businesses and property for the next 20 years.

      The problem isn't firefighters. It is those who tell them not to fight fires

      "Sparse fuels?" Look at the picture. At least half of what we see in that picture IS FUEL.

The Federal Government is at fault. End of sentence. They should have put it out as soon as they knew about it, not 2 weeks later. I believe they need to reevaluate their procedures before more people suffer. Totally unacceptable. BLM needs to take accountability.

in a normal year let it burn in a drought year suppress
Posted on: 2021-07-19 14:13:48   By: Anonymous
 
in a normal year let it burn in a drought year suppress. In a normal year burn it in april, controlled... maybe may or december. When dry put it out. if this much money was spent on controlled burns (in normal years) there would be 1/2 of the fuel for the fire, in its place we have acres burning.

    True. Likely seems common sense is lost in today’s climate change era. Too much fire suppression the last 40 plus years has created to the extreme fire conditions.

        What does The Donald have to do with this. Joey is probably getting a double scoop of ice cream on a cone. The line of people behind him are probably mad because he is asking for the flavor-C’mon man? uhmm….oh you know the thing! Good thing Ole Ragged Anne not taking orders…She would have to circle back to Joey.

          Exactly except resources were already deployed.
          There were many lightening fires from July4th.
          You have got to comprehend the numbers of fires from that July 4th lightening event.
          Large area ,limited resources.

            In the time it took them to fly over it and post that their lack of suppression efforts was in and if itself action they could have dropped a few helicopter buckets on the fire.

            Arrogance and idiocy are a deadly combo

              This is not the only fire this year or in pass years that they have done this. They are screwing around right now with the Henry Fire. Ask about the Rim Fire and Donnell Fire.

                Exactly! This horsepoop the Forest Service is feeding us has to end. If not, these "fire managers" will burn every one of us out.

                  Correct! They have and are doing exactly that! Independent investigations commissioned by the Boards of Supervisors in each impact county will expose this practice.
