Please keep up the good work.
Unfortunately, some of our neighbors have not been as fortunate. There have
been two incidents on neighboring properties.
The first incident was caused by unidentified parties and it resulted in over 800
acres burning that belonged to our landowner. Even worse a brave Department of
Forestry employee was burned very badly while fighting this fire. He is currently
undergoing lengthy hospital treatment and will have to go through this treatment
for many months.
The second incident caused about an acre and a half in damage. Luckily, this fire
was put out before it became a raging inferno.
For those of you not accustomed to camping in a wilderness area, these fire threats
are VERY serious and not to be taken lightly. If a fire gets started it will burn
hundreds of acres and put emergency volunteers at risk.
Please refrain from using charcoal grills. If you must cook, please make sure it's a
Please refrain from smoking on the claims. If you must you better have a can of
water to put your cigarette butts in. Do not under any circumstances flick or drop
your cigarette butts. This is the leading cause of forest fires
Thank you for your understanding and co-operation
