    Don't worry, if that's the case, we'll all go on a gerbil hunt and get the vermin responsible for burning your house down.

              THe governor of California is saying this is the worst fire the state has had in recorded history, with the largest land area ever burning at one time.

                Sorta makes you wonder about the Yellowstone Theory a little more, Doesn't it?

                    Arnie should be able to deal with that fire pretty good, after all, he's a super hero.

                      Sure.

                      It's also called proscribed burning, where people literally start fires for controlled rebirth of forests. The theory is that forests burn to replenish themselves, and that an old forest burns to replenish itself. Yellowstone went up in flames years ago. After the Smokey the Bear campaign, where there was the oldest forest on
                      Earth, that had not seen fire for centuries. Since the burning of more than 65% of the forests in Yellowstone, more than half has regrown completely, and the reast i not so close behind.


                      So, if you burn a forest in a controlled environment every 30 years or so, then you shouldn't have super-blazing fireballs like California.



                      Or, at lesat that's the theory.

                        OK, I'd heard about that technique, just never heard it called The Yellowstone Theory.

                          In Australia in particular, the Eucalypt (Gum) tree has evolved to the point where is the first plant to use fire as a weapon. The oily leaves of the tree and loose bark and limbs all encourage fire, and the tree itself is fairly fire resistant. When a fire comes, the trees survive while their competitors are destroyed by the fire.

                          For that matter, a large number of Australian plants can only grow after a fire. Some of their seed pods only open after a fire.

                            Such as the fir trees in northern California.
