Forest fires have not been in the news much this summer in the US, at least not in the lower 48. It’s still early in the year, and it’s been a very wet Spring for a lot of the country, but it doesn’t take long for things to dry out and become tinder.
The exception is Alaska. They’ve had a dry spring and their forest lands were poised to ignite as summer arrived. With news channels focused on the debris towed away by the catastrophes of tornadoes in the middle of the country, we at Fire-Systems have taken great notice of the massive loss resulting from forest fires reigning in Alaska.
