  1. I feel sorry for the rancher having to carry the guilt of starting the state’s worse fire in history by doing his job that on any other day would have been mundane and not news worthy. I hope he and everyone else who work out in these kind of conditions learn to be prepared for such a situation like a fire extinguisher for one would have gave him a chance to get it out when the ground is to hard and water line fails.
    Please everyone buy an extinguisher there not that much money and could save a life.

    • Have you ever tried to put out a grass or brush fire with a fire extinguisher? It does not work. I tried it several times as the river fire burned through my place of work.
