Saturday, November 29, 2008


A light news day today (which is probably a good thing), leading off with a stark reminder of how much area burned in Orange County, as underscored by a NASA satellite shot of the area. La Canada-Flintridge residents are reminded to perform vegetation clearance around homes, and an article on the danger of avalanches to skiers in Sun Valley from wildfire-damaged forest areas. Ardmore, OK, had a moderate grass fire snuffed with some assistance from the Bureau of Indian Affairs, while Florida residents are reminded of the wildfire danger there despite the onset of the holiday season. Firefighters in North Carolina are going to take advantage of favorable conditions to conduct a controlled burn after the first of the year. Overseas, a climate change conference attended by 190 nations will take place in Poland over the next two weeks. And finally, a feel good story about how firefighters in Boston turned the tragedy of a ruined Thanksgiving dinner into a day the family will probably never forget.
