3 homes destroyed, 2 damaged, many structures burned in Rose Crest Fire
So... I guess fireworks are out of the picture this year?
@GoGetterThat's right. Because this fire was caused by a hot
car (muffler), we need to ban fireworks and target shooters.Regarding the eight current fires burning in Utah, I asked my family last
night how many were caused by people. They jointly said all of them--by target
shooters. As of last night, only two were known to have been caused by humans.
Two had been caused by lightning. The other causes were unknown.So
it goes to prove the power of the media to drive their message.
Imagine how much better things would be for everyone if we used our time for
assisting rather than criticizing and blaming. Accidents happen and at times
have tragic results. All the finger pointing and cussing won't change what
happened.It looks like its going to be a bad year for fires. Step
one - use common sense about any activities which might cause another one. Step
two - if there is a fire, act responsibly and assist others. Step three - Spend
your time rebuilding not rebuffing.
Re:MapleDonIt has been reported that 20 fires have been started by target
shooting, over a period of time. Im betting if your house was destroyed by
target shooting you might want to see some restrictions on where and when it is
allowed?It is good for the public to become informed about fire
risks associated with parking cars on dry weeds/grass. Here people are told to
only mow and weed whack early in the day to reduce the risk of fire. Also it is
mandatory for homeowners to mow their fields (except those being cultivated).
@TruthseekerI've experienced a change of heart. Wow, you really
woke me up. You're right. We need to lock up all guns and fireworks. Take
them away from all citizens because no good could ever possibly come from anyone
using them. And just because someone has a car doesn't give
him/her the right to use it. When anyone drives a car, there's an
accompanying risk of harm to person or property. Take cars also away. People can
use public transportation.I can now see the light you shared
earlier. People are going to make mistakes and some of those mistakes are going
to be costly. That should not be tolerated. I agree with you. Freedom and
liberty are causing most of our problems today.What we need are laws
making it illegal to do anything that puts Mother Earth or any individual or
property at risk. Common sense needs to be legislated in order to ensure nothing
or no one is harmed. And any item that creates risk should be illegal. Guns,
fireworks, cars, matches and lighters, bicycles, barbecue grills, sports,
etc.And protection against all harm is true freedom. Wow! I get it.
