Sad that WA DC is letting it burn. They have spent over $5 million dollars “managing” the Copper King fire near Thompson Falls in the last 3 weeks, but firefightees tell me they could have had it out the first week if the feds had the objective of putting it out.
The pollution has been affecting a lot of folks in the area.
Really sad, especially since for every single $1 spent on proactive
vegetation management BEFORE a fire ignites, approximately $17 in wildfire fighting costs could be saved as well as savings of up to $500 per dollar in total damages.
