Interested Forest Fire Damage.. Maybe A Professional Can Explain?

  

Mountainboy left this comment on an earlier post:


There is a side link on that site, showing burnt cabins/homes with zero forest burned around the building sites, I should have counted the cabins burned 7-8?, surrounding forest-zero. This gives rise to the question: Is the media and govt suppressing news that antifa is burning private property? Yo Feral, with your wide spread reader net can we get the true story behind this and if so, publicize the hell out of it. my damn phone kept going off when I was trying to study the site and so I don't trust my judgement on this yet. Please take a look, it might be something, maybe not. Stay safe. 


I went back and found this twitter post which I think MB is referencing:




This is drone footage captured during the Paradise CA fires from 2018?. Here is a link to the site. You can explore some very high resolution 360° drone images.

Here is a quick video on how to navigate for best viewing once you get to the site imho:

  1. Common sense, really. Basic shit: Fires need 3 things to burn. Fuel, air, heat. Take away one of them, and nothing happens. Fuel needs to be dry enough to burn. It needs to stay hot enough as well. Air is air, we don't need to discuss that.
    Lots of quick burning stuff ( dry pine needles) don't create enough heat to burn the stuff that's still wet and attached to the trees. Go look for the video of the cottonwood 'fires' where the fluff burns off the grass, and the grass stays green. Not enough heat is generated to burn the grass. Same with these areas in the photos above. Temperature doesn't get hot enough to burn what's above it. It'll torch a car that's right above and tons of plastic underneath, it'll torch a house with all the wood and plastic shit attached to it, but it won't torch a tree that is still green and 6-20' above the fire. Just isn't hot enough, close enough or flammable enough to burn. If there were video of the actual fires in this area, you'd probably see enough to prove what I mentioned.

  2. It sure aint natural. Fires set with lazers?

    1. a laser is the worst way to start a fire. it'll burn things to carbon, but the smoke pushes away all the oxygen, so no fire.

      I've seen all the "directed energy weapons" memes, and which makes more sense...putting a billion-dollar satellite in orbit to fire a laser to burn down people's homes...or a guy with a cessna and a flaregun?

      or a guy in a black hoodie and some beer bottles full of gasoline?

  3. The forest fire that only burned homes and spared the trees is correctly labeled arson there are no burnt trees nor a clear path of burnt underbrush .

  4. Only dwellings burned, not surrounding forest? Something is very wrong with that...

  5. So here we go again with the dipshit conspiracy theories. I stayed in Paradise through the Camp Fire and saw how it burned. Saw my neighborhood burn with about a 60% destruction rate. The majority of the burn was ground fire,bushes, fences and crap in peoples yards. The fire crowned in a hopscotch pattern, it is easy to spot driving through town. Look up "Ladder Fuels".

    1. Feral so you had first hand experience and saw how it playf out. From anyone that has only seen the forest fires and destruction on TV it is interesting that the drone images seeming show trees intact and houses absolutely gone. Maybe this is why people are pushing for forest management and removal of all the dead debris and scrub on the ground? Thanks for stopping by.

    2. That is exactly what is needed. Peoples former homes here in Paradise were a mess waiting to go up. Wooden fences, flammable brush and 4' high densely packed evergreens used as privacy fences and no trimming of the dead lower branches of trees.
      The fire was driven by 60+ mph winds, even higher aloft. The only air tanker to go up and recon the fire was almost lost because of the speed of the tail wind he encountered. He was lucky to be able to maneuver to regain lift and control.

    3. When I saw the aerial photo and burn pattern I thought "ground fire." Ground fires are the least damaging, but can do serious damage when there is plenty of dry brush and down dead stuff to burn. Trees might be damaged, but not killed by the fire, but structures can go up. The odd tree burned where they are close to structures bear this out.

      Kalifornia has a serious problem with forest management. To say the management is incompetent would be charitable.
