Rep. McClintock Requests Information About the Lack of Initial Suppression Efforts to Combat the Tamarack Fire from Chief of the U.S. Forest Service Vicki Christiansen

Washington, DC...Rep. McClintock sent a letter to Chief of the U.S. Forest Service Vicki Christiansen requesting answers as to why there was a lack of suppression action to combat the Tamarack Fire that began on July 4, 2021 until after July 10, 2021.





“This fire has now burned over 23,000 acres with no reported containment, threatening nearby communities and forcing evacuations…When was the decision made to monitor this fire instead of immediately acting to suppress it? Why was this decision made? Who made this decision and which USFS officials were consulted and informed? What legal authority authorized the USFS to allow this wildfire to burn in lieu of immediate full suppression?”

“Given the number of wildfires and their increasing size coupled with severe fire danger conditions throughout the West, I recommend that you immediately reevaluate current U.S. Forest Service direction that allows wildfires to burn and instruct all Regional Foresters that all wildfires be suppressed as soon as possible.”

Read Congressman McClintock’s full letter to Chief Christiansen below...

          Look at a map of the fire area it is burnt all the way around the town. Some structures did burn. For the people who live there it might as well be burnt. All they will see is ugliness in the burnt surroundings. Who will want to come visit and stay at the businesses when the area is destroyed? Their businesses are doomed. Long after these kind of fires helpless wildlife can be seen roaming and injured. Who would want to live in a place like that?

          Seems there is still fire danger to them as they are not being allowed back in their homes. Only short trips to retrieve things.

          Along with being heartless, you are an uneducated slob.

              But let their livelihoods burn. Like an injury to an athlete. Yes the athlete is still alive but he is no longer an athlete. Markleeville was a quaint mountain tourist destination. Now its buildings in a burn scar. Thanks USFS

      Tom let them off the hook for the Rim and Donnell fires. This won't be any different. Tom really doesn't give a crap about this.

        Exactly ,
        This is political expediency nothing more.

        Tom isn’t even in the district he serves.
        He loathes the foothill communities and sees his political
        Appointment as a way to extract resources and curry favor in Washington DC.

        His “inquiry”
        Is nothing more than a new avenue to pursue. He will try to use any opportunity available to serve his overlords and enrich himself .

        You can find 1,000 firefighters now but you couldn't find 2 on July 10? Now how many of those resources have you burned with just plain idiocy?

        Dixie Fire- PG&E Again

        Again PG&E's policy of 12 ' clearance causes another fire.
        When will reasonable wider clearances be made law?

            Forest Service Territory Turf War
            Posted on: 2021-07-20 14:40:41   By: Anonymous
             
            This shows the idiocy of the turf wars of the agencies.
            We had this with the Old Gulch Fire in the grand jury report .
            The turf wars caused more acreages burned by inter agency turf wars.

            If there are available trained wild fire persons available no matter what agency they should respond especially to these smoldering lightening fires.
            The Forest service was busy with all the lightening fires. They needed to use local fire fighters to nip these fires in the bud, whether CalFire, or local fire Departments.

            This is the idiocy of agency turf wars.

            We see the results again.

              Old Gulch was the beginning of all this mess of letting these fires get away and destroy everything. Still the same now.

              Not sure how many are left to tell the story of how this has been happening for years. It should certainly stop people from moving here when your home will most likely burn up because of these unacceptable practices to fire fighting.
