Smoke is unhealthy and unattractive. Should find alternate use for the dead trees and vegetation - hog fuel, chips, burn in controlled atmosphere to create steam for electricity generation.

We live in the high desert, a dry environment prone to fires. With what has happened in CA, I am for any effort to thwart such a disaster as happened in Paradise, CA.

Prescribed burning has been going on for more years than I’ve been alive, it helps clean up the excess debris and undergrowth that fuels big wildfires.

The smoke from the Mega fires is much more intrusive and unhealthy for communities. Prescribed burns are conducted when air streams carry smoke away for the most part. 10x more smoke with uncontroll

"To"? Anyone who can't spell a three letter word is unpersuasive.

I'll go with "no" on this one. If there's insurance on the house, the insurer could do that. Ditto for any mortgage holder. If neither applies, I don't think we should try to regulate stupidity.

Grew up in the Midwest. The local storms are wimpy compared to those!

I love thunder and lightening! Don't like the fires though but do like the rain. Always on the front porch with my granddaughter whenever a thunder storm rolls in
