This is heartbreaking.  We go there often, such a beautiful place.  The poor wildlife. . .

^agree - and it is getting little coverage in the MSM - amazing - thousands of acres burning throughout the southeast and hardly any coverage.

Drought caused this - but keep on denying climate change.

It is heartbreaking - utter destruction.

^It's on the news nonstop where I am and the latest report is that it was "human caused".  I'd sure like to get my hands on whoever did that! 

Here's CNN's latest with truly devastating photographs:

Yooper - yes a person started the fire - but it is spreading out of control because everything is so parched - serious drought

^You misunderstand me.  You're quite right the drought is the worst on record.  I only meant that if the state issues a drought warning then depending on how it was caused it can be a considerable crime to be careless or if arson, much worse.

In California an arsonist is lucky if nobody finds them before the police.
