    I have no idea what this cat found to eat in a burned-out neighborhood but he managed to survive. If he had not been micro-chipped, his owners would never have known. The lesson here is: Get your pets micro-chipped.

    Cat lost in Camp Fire found 102 days later, will reunite with family in Missouri

    Last year's California wildfires burned 1,893,913 acres, killed 103 people and caused more than $3.5 billion in damages. Not one person in California could possibly be surprised by this headline:

    California wildfires can't possibly be worse in 2019 than they were in 2018, can they? Mmm.......maybe they can – but I hope not.

    Busy wildfire season expected For West
    WeatherBug, May 6 2019

    Most of the country can expect a normal wildfire season but residents along the West Coast of the United States should be ready for another busy season, the National Interagency Fire Center says. California experienced its deadliest and largest wildfires in the past two years, including a fire in the northern part of the state last year that destroyed the town of Paradise, killing more than 80 people. It was the nation's worst death toll from a wildfire in a century. The Boise-based center said a heavy crop of grasses and fine fuels has developed across California and should elevate fire potential as it dries through the summer.

    Last November's Camp Fire in northern California burned 153,336 acres, killed 85 people – three are still missing – and caused $16.5 billion in damages. We now know who to blame. Whatever it costs, PG&E power lines in mountain areas should be relocated underground.

    PG&E power lines caused California’s deadliest fire, investigators conclude

    Last year, California had the most and the largest and the most destructive wildfires in state history. The first major fire of 2019 is now burning near the towns of Guinda and Rumsey in northern California.

    A word of warning to this witless wonder: Wildfires are worse than wasps.

    Man trying to kill wasps accidentally starts massive fire
    AOL Video, Jun 13 2019

    A just-released investigation reveals the largest recorded wildfire in California history was accidentally started by a rancher trying to kill some wasps. Investigators say the Ranch Fire started when the man came upon a nest of wasps buried underground last July. The rancher, Glenn Kile, is allergic to wasp stings so he took a metal stake and pounded it into the ground to try to seal the nest off. Unfortunately, a single spark flew up and ignited dry grass on his property.

    CarMax could hold a "fire sale" but I doubt anyone would be interested.

    Grapevine is a small unincorporated community alongside the Golden State (5) Freeway in southern Kern County. Grapevine has several gas stations and fast-food places for travelers – and today it also has a brush fire (actually a merger of two fires). Southern California's fire season is once again starting three months early.

    California's largest wildfire of 2019 – so far – was sparked Sunday afternoon by "vehicular traffic" on Highway 139 and by Monday evening had burned 10,000 acres. It is threatening power lines but not homes.

    Growth slows on Tucker fire in Modoc County, which has burned 14,217 acres near Clear Lake

    Another wildfire along the Golden State Freeway. An unusually rainy winter caused heavy growth of brush on hillsides – and summer heat has killed much of it. The fire danger is extremely high and wil remain so for the next three months.
