Fire units from Lake County Fire Protection District, Northshore Fire, South Lake County Fire, Konocti crews all responded. Also on hand to help were units from Clearlake Police, California Highway Patrol and Lake County Sheriff’s Office.
If all the Fire Departments in California, Oregon and Washington had tanker trucks full of Mighty Fire Breaker Clean Fire Inhibitor Chemistry they would put out all our wild fire faster than spraying water on the flames. If the Fire Fighters in the picture above were spraying clean fore inhibitor out in front on the dry fuel there would be less smoke and the fire would shut down the minute its hits the chemical fore break even when teh chemistry is bone dry and clinging to the dry vegetation. Lighting these back fires to control dry fuel is old school we need to embrace new clean fire inhibitor chemistry to spray fire breaks because all wild fires create tones of GreenHouse gas that undermines our clean energy gain. There is no need to remove dead brush when Mighty Fire Breaker is used and sprayed out in front to create good chemistry fire breaks.
