NY Times has a really good article on the Paradise Camp Fire:
‘We Have Fire Everywhere’

Yes indeed, an excellent article. I particularly noted this comment in the ending:


"The houses had revealed themselves: They were just another crop of tightly clustered and immaculately dried-out dead trees, a forest that had grown, been felled and milled, then rearranged sideways and hammered together by clever human beings who, over time, came to forget the volatile ecosystem that spawned that material and still surrounded it now."

Timber frame construction is popular in California for a very good reason. Such structures are generally quite earthquake resistant - I just watched my house rock, roll, and recover just a few weeks ago. Now we need fire and EQ resistant construction.

Changes will be made.
