Years ago, when I was in construction, there was an article in Fine Homebuilding about the Oakland fire. A whole hillside of homes burned. There was
one engineer who had decided that he wanted his house to be fire safe. He put heavy plaster on the outside including the soffits and gables. He of
course had a fire proof roof, but also added spark suppression to his vents. He kept vegetation away from the house.
The hillside looked like Hiroshima with one untouched white house standing in the middle.
I think there ought to be a class action suite by all home owners against the state of California. It is possible to build fire proof and it's not
The Moroccan city of Fez which has a climate similar to CA, a city of 2 million hardly has firetrucks. There was one fire while I was there. The
contents of a shop burned up, but the building was hardly damaged. Everything is make of cement.
Recently, in SW Florida, they had a "controlled burn". Unfortunately, they waited til late spring when everything was bone dry. Thousands of acres
burned out of control. The Indians used to do controlled burns. They didn't wait until the whole world would burn.
California is controlled by idiots. Perhaps they deserve what they are getting.
