  1. @lakewooder. The reason for not posting the location is for those people that don’t think like you and head to an active scene and interfare with the emergency personnel

  2. Building on every available piece of land will not prevent these fires. You can not prevent fire by building.You will actually make it more of a threat to your surroundings.
