Re: “Homeowners Allege Firefighters in Saddle Fire Endangered Lives, Property

I just want to say i am very grateful to the firefighters, and we are truly thankful our home survived. I am not opposed to burn out operations and understand them to be a successful strategy in the right conditions. at the public meeting on Saturday, the usfs agreed to light no more burn outs in the afternoon. A newsweek article shows subsequent burnouts lit at night. There were many calls made by concerned citizens about the plan Friday to light in the afternoon. We are thankful no one was hurt. Firefighters are true heroes! We are not seeking compensation as the article states, and about 200 acres of private land burned (not20). We would like the usfs to coordinate more with local fire safe councils. That is the intention of sharing our story.

Dan, our house is clear. The barn is not. In 2004 during the sims fire, the firefighters said they would take refuge in the house after they foamed it if things got crazy. Since then we have put in a pond by the house. We have a fire pump and fire hose. We have done fuels reduction projects around our meadow and driveway. We put dozer lines around our home as soon as the fire started. We even put in dozer lines under the power poles where the burn out was lit a usfs request.

All the usfs had to do was study the previous day's weather to know winds would shift
