Utah officials blame lack of logging for major wildfire

Utah officials blame lack of logging for major wildfire

If you noticed the "haze" around the metro areas today, and even in parts of the mountains, that is smoke from a large wildfire in Southern Utah. "It's just plain stupidity".

"Things change day to day", Mr Wilder said.

In Los Angeles, California, there are three states including California are terrified of increasing heat waves with temperature over 100 degrees, which also prompt a potential alarm of the continuing wildfires that till now perished over 100,000 acres under its fire rage.

In Arizona, firefighters had to ground aircraft after they spotted drones being flown near the fire, Bureau of Land Management spokesman Dennis Godfrey said.

On California's Central Coast, evacuation orders remain in place for sparsely populated rural areas of San Luis Obispo County east of the town of Santa Margarita due to a almost 2-square-mile (5 sq. kilometer) fire.

Fox News is reporting that Utah forestry officials' Wildland Fire Prevention and Education team says preliminary statistics to date for wildfires in Utah indicate human activities were responsible for approximately 91 percent of the wildfires in 2017 which have already burned approximately 73,000 acres. The truth is that climate change, drought, historic fire suppression and wind all play roles in the severity of fires.

Finney said logging companies generally can't make money in operations at high elevations because the trees don't grow back quickly enough and logistics are hard. "It has emboldened some very anti-environmental voices". A wildfire surging out of control on California's Central Coast has forced around 250 people to evacuate from their homes.

California fire officials issued evacuation warnings for some residents in Riverside County on Monday night after a vehicle crash ignited a 5,000-acre brush fire in a remote area located about 80 miles east of Los Angeles.

The blaze erupted and quickly surged in hot, dry, windy weather.

A new wildfire that broke out Tuesday has prompted evacuations for dozens more homes in San Bernardino County. It was climbing ridges and moving away from homes but came frighteningly close to a subdivision, prompting the evacuations, U.S. Forest Service spokeswoman Gerrelaine Alcordo said.

Wildfires have forced evacuations in several states.

They say the estimated firefighting costs now top $7 million for a fire started June 17 near the Brian Head Resort by someone using a torch tool to burn weeds.
