Do you have so many of these that 10,000 acres is only a "brush fire" now?

We used to have Fire Breaks and major brush clearance in all the hills and mountains. But the public said they we eyesores and no more Fire Breaks. And yes, they cost lots of money to maintain. But cost in the long run would have been much less.

Very sad days here due to all the loss.
