While DanaMite would love to create a wildfire overview spread like this one below on every BAD FIRE YEAR, it is unrealistic to compile such list when I am so consumed fixing code and broken government links on my 5000 page web site.

october, 2003: San Diego on Fire

The last weeks have been living hell. The series of wildfires have been classified as California worst fire season in history. Whether or not it's arson, lightning strikes, stupid cigarrettes or ignorant outdoorsmen, the effects are final. Very final & very sad. Millions of dollars, thousands of acres burnt, thousands of homes lost, hundreds of lives affected. Southern California has now lost so much that it will take decades to heal.

More than 743,000 acres burned OCT-NOV 2003, caused 22 deaths & destroyed more than 3,570 homes in Southern California.

Lands of Losses

The remaining forests & small towns that were untouched by fires will now become our sacred local weekend destinations. More crowded as the population expands, the need for outdoor recreation and seclusion is growing. Most of our back country & valuable lands are at risk in numerous ways not only weather related, but man made destruction as well. Severe drought, increased wildfires, flash flooding, river flooding, rock slides to vandalism, off road abuse, and oil fracking operations.

Educating the public on fire safety: wildfires, campfires, vandalism watch, & fire reporting is a main concrn when enjoying the outdoors often.
