Lightning Not PG&E Caused Northern California Fires


Fires in Northern California are raging uncontained
Caused by lightening and not PG&E to sue or blame
2nd largest in state’s history with fire resources stretched to the max
Thousands of structures threatened, thousands evacuating on roads no time to relax
Another warning that when it comes to fire, Mother Nature has all the cards
And fighting wildfires in this heat and winds is far from easy, really very hard
Thank God for firefighters who in triple digit heat put themselves in harm’s way
Winds shift and there is little chance they have to their death delay
Hopefully the feds and surrounding states have responded to the all hands on deck call
No one in a threatened town ever wants to see an approaching fire wall
A message to those threatened--a home near a fire with a garden hose will be protected
Stay as opposed to fleeing and death not life will be the choice you may have selected
