Yeah, how about a little forest management so that there isn’t enough underbrush fuel to make any of these fires a problem.

It takes three things to make a fire: Air, fuel, and ignition. Air we can do nothing about. Ignitions, such as lightning strikes, happen all the time. The only tool available to control the damage a fire can do is to manage the fuel.

Would be very helpful as would allowing companies to log out dead trees in areas ravaged by beetle kill. Unfortunately the area in the black forest fire is not a forest so much as a wooded residential area, as you can tell by the number of homes lost. There are similar communities spread all through the Colorado foothills and front range.
