Long term Fire Danger

Take a GOOD look. This tree was in the fire zone of the Dyer Mill Fire. 3+ months ago!!! Last Friday the VFD got called out because the tree was smoking and a new fire had started. Turns out the tree has been smoldering internally for the past 3 months. All it took was a small increase in wind and a broken branch as a way for the fire to get out and another fire was started. We are all going to have to keep a close eye out for some time to make sure none of the trees involved in the latest fires catch back up as weather conditions change.
Stay Safe People!
