At the same time I'm watching this thinking how cool it is, I get thrown back in my chair thinking of the devastation this is causing.
My heart goes out to you folks living there.

In certain countries those fires are a daily plague during the hot season and they are almost always arsons. Someone burns woods to build houses and palaces on that ground (and of course to sell them...). In those countries fire is a business.

What about the fires in California? Which is their origin?
What about the Californian legislation? Is there a hard law that prevents people from building on burnt grounds?

I seem to recall news reports claiming this year's fire was cause by arson as well.
