Deadly walls of flame -- 'It's almost like a war' / DISASTER TOLL: 16 dead, thousands homeless, 16000 homes destroyed.

Just insane . . .

They need more national guard to fight the fires. It's more man-power and money needed. Luckily, California leases planes from Canada to ['cause there fire season ended] to help fight it, or else it would've been tremendously worse.

if developers would stop building into the back country, or at least burying the power lines, this kind of fire would not happen. Hard to be sympathetic when the same thing happened four yrs ago. Quit building in the back country. It burns all the time.

there's so many problem's in california. And i think something need's to be done. i know theres n ot much we can do know. but the sad thing about it is that the wind is blowing towards the west. when it need's to be blowing towards the east. i Dont understands whats going on in the world today. i just know that this carbon doesnt need to in the biosphere. or the world is going to have a bigger issues with global warming. Im only a high school kid i know...but not only is it going to cause a threat to the world with global warming. But also animals there are surton animals and plant's that we as human's need. and these wild fries are harming these animals that we need. and some plant's animals need and if those animals in that surton area are killed o ut then how will those plant's get there nutrition? all this is overwellming. i dont ju st speaking my opinion.

Michelle is an idiot. She obviously has no understanding of what the conjunction of sicko arsonists and downed power lines plus natural phenomena like santa ana winds do to the world. It has absolutely nothing to do with builders. As long as there are aberrant human beings like the person(s) that started the santiago canyon fire and one or more of those in sd cty, then this will continue. "Hard to be sympathetic"--how heartless--like people could/would abandon so.cal ever, let alone in four years--what a dunce.
