Shouldn't you be out raking Montana's forests? Seems big fires are hitting the state pretty hard.
There are 250 active duty Soldiers fighting fires in California today. They are out of Joint Base Lewis-Mchord. There are 250 more ready to go out of Fort Carson. If the State needs them, they simply need to request assistance from the National Interagency Fire Center located in Boise.

What else do you want your Army to do for you? Good chance the young men and women serving will be ready to do so.
The Army has done little for THIS country during most of my lifetime. Sorry, go rake that forest.

El Dorado Fire near Yucaipa sparked by pyrotechnic device at gender reveal party, officials say

A smoke-generating pyrotechnic device used during a gender reveal party sparked the El Dorado Fire burning near Yucaipa, which has charred more than 8,000 acres, officials say.

YUCAIPA, Calif. (KABC) -- A smoke-generating pyrotechnic device used during a gender reveal party sparked the El Dorado Fire burning near Yucaipa, which has charred more than 9,000 acres, officials said.

According to the Cal Fire San Bernardino Unit, the El Dorado Fire was caused by "a smoke generating pyrotechnic device" used during the party in El Dorado Ranch Park. The fire spread from the park to Yucaipa Ridge, which separates Mountain Home Village and Forest Falls from Yucaipa.

"Cal Fire reminds the public that with the dry conditions and critical fire weather, it doesn't take much to start a wildfire", the agency said in a press release. "Those responsible for starting fires due to negligence or illegal activity can be held financially and criminally responsible."

Some residents of the nearby community of Oak Glen, like Patrick Patterson, were upset to learn about the blaze's cause. His home has been surrounded by smoke since it ignited and says the flames got close overnight.

"That place, there's nothing green out there. It's a meadow of dry, brown, dead grass. Why would you go out there and think that you can light off any kind of firework? Smoke or otherwise. It all has fire," Patterson said.




CalFire investigator Capt. Bennet Milloy says the family that hosted the gender reveal party has been cooperating with authorities and they actually tried to put the fire out.

"They tried to use water bottles, which in four-foot high grass, you're never going to capture a grass fire with that," he said.

Still, they could potentially face serious consequences.

"Potential laws that they may have broken are some public resource codes, which is igniting a land that's not owned by you," Milloy added. "If you cause a fire on that land, that's a misdemeanor in the state of California."

There could also be misdemeanor or felony charges if the fire goes onto forest land, which it has, or if it destroys structures or other property.

"I am upset that people are stupid," said Forest Falls resident Linda Corcoran, who had to evacuate her home with her husband. "People don't possess common sense and so yes, I am angry, but not surprised."

The El Dorado Fire erupted Saturday before 10:30 a.m. in the 37000 block of Oak Glen Road. It has grown to 9,671 acres as of Monday evening and containment is listed at 7%.

Gov. Gavin Newsom declared a state of emergency on Sunday for San Bernardino County due to the fire. Four other counties in California were also under a state of emergency due to wildfires amid extreme temperatures.

Time lapse video taken over 15 minutes on Saturday shows the El Dorado Fire quickly exploding from 25 to 400 acres as thick smoke plumes tower over the Yucaipa area. As of Sunday morning, the blaze was over 2,700 acres.



Evacuations were ordered when the fire erupted. According to the San Bernardino National Forest, the evacuation area included the communities of Oak Glen, Mountain Home Village, Forest Falls and North Bench Yuciapa (north of Carter St. to Highway 38 and both sides of Bryant St., east & west).



An evacuation center was set up at the Yucaipa Community Center at 34900 Oak Glen Rd. The evacuation center was later moved to Redlands East Valley High School at 31000 E. Colton Avenue.




Road closures were in place for Highway 38 at Bryant Street in Yucaipa and the community of Angelus Oaks, and Oak Glen Road at Pine Bench Road on the east and Cherry Croft/Jefferson on the west.

More than 600 personnel were battling flames, along with 60 engines, three fixed-wing aircraft and six helicopters, according to the San Bernardino National Forest.

...Medicine and science was so advanced back then...
At least, the medical and science people could be listened to and and believed back then.
They can now also, its just that we have a specific group of people in this country that have been so efficient and loudly spreading bullshit that educators and scientists are all of a sudden "not trustworthy".

We're so [#]f###!no soft as a society. The Continental Congress met during multiple pandemics and signed the Declaration of Independence. The tough SOBs who conquered the West persevered. Our Armies lost thousands of Soldiers to disease during our many wars...

Today, we shudder ourselves in our homes cloaked by fear.

Soft and weak.
According to your logic, Americans shouldn’t be taking any precautions. Instead of 190,000 deaths, we might have 500,000 deaths. Sounds like you were on the sauce.

Yep typical, f###[#] morons. Its people like this guy who have succeeded in running our country into the ground. I wish people like you would just get out of CEO positions, and political offices, get the [#]f### out of the way for actually informed, intelligent, empathetic humans who make decisions based on science and facts.

People like you would stick their dicks in a badgers mouth just to prove to millennials' how "soft and weak" they are.

Nope. Leading a combined arms live fire exercise. No masks, thousands of weapons, lots of HE, and the intoxicating smell of cordite with young men and women who are not soft or weak.

Back to your locked doors and shuttered windows spankster.

Thanks for the kind words. No hero, but certainly proud to serve with a bunch of them.

You have to remember Nancy Pelosi was only in her first year in cogress in 1918. Had she been there a little longer she would have lead the charge and halted college football back then.....

LA, your comment that the Army has done little for this country is out of line if it was a serious comment. We would be speaking German if it wasn’t for the United States Army.
