  1. got a forest fire………should have had a B-8……………only B-8 has all the forest fire fighting tools and H2O needed for a healthy fire

  2. To #4 & 7,
    My thoughts ran along the same lines: If the developers don’t get the trees, the fire does the job. Of course fire’s too dangerous, but at least this way the trees can grow back, unlike when the builders get to them! That is if the builders don’t get there before the trees grow back!

  3. I’m sitting here at home in the Pine Acres section watching a fire helicopter go back and forth to what looks like the same area again. A flare-up perhaps? It’s 4:19pm.

  4. It’s under control. Just because theres a helicopter doesn’t mean its not. A helicopter makes it easier for them to drop water in harder places to reach with the trucks.

  5. The fire is contain-but not out . It covers many acres of land. The fire will continue to burn until we get a few inches of rain. Because of the very dry conditions that we have at the current time this fire is burning in the root system of the trees and the dead leaf matter. Even with firefighters dumping 1000’s of gallons of water on it the underground burning will not go out. All active flames have been knock down. You will smell this blaze until we get RAIN and lots of it. Fire units will be working 24 hr’s a day until the Forestry folks deem it no longer a hazard to break the containment lines that surround the blaze. A helicopter unit was called to assist firefighters working in the swamp to drop water on the many hard to get spots that are still burning close to the containment line
