"Controlled Burn" equals "out of control"As I recall, this started
out as a managed fire to improve habitat etc,etc,etc.What it has
done is burn out of control, filling the skies with dense smoke and ash! I am
not happy that a holiday weekend was basically ruined because of the smoke that
made breathing very difficult anywhere east or northeast of the fire.Where is the EPA, and Utah Dept of Health, Dept of Enviromental Quality, etc?
The expect the citizens to keep the air so very clean by regulating every little
source of pollution, but when it is the government causing the pollution, "no
problem"!They could have put out this fire a long time ago, but then
the "managers" wouldn't have had anything to do.Would be interesting
to know what the total cost of this "managed burn" is going to be? Probably
millions of your hard earned tax dollars.
