YEAR-TO-DATE STATS

January 1 – March 4

NOTE:  Numbers do not include fires included in Complexes

2016:  There were 4,377 large fires that have scorched 187,697 acres.

2015:  2015 was known as the worst Fire Season on record in some States but the numbers are easily being squashed in 2016.  5,881 large fires were reported burning up 92,915 acres.

2014:  The most large fires reported during this time over years 2010, 2012, 2013, 2015 and 2016, with 6,512 and burning 81,314 acres.  This is less in acreage in years 2012, 2015 and 2016.

2013:  The lowest number of fires at 2,304 and the recorded less number of acreage at 21,05.  Only to have this year repeat itself but these stats have been left in the dust.

2012:  Almost 5,000 [exact: 4,977] large fires were reported burning up 92,646 acres.  This is the 4th highest in acreage burned following behind years 2011 as the highest, 2016 coming in 2nd and 2015 in third.

2011:  2011 was reported the largest amount of wildfires nationally topping out at a whopping 316,267 acres from 10,604 large wildland fires reported.  We hope to not see this again anytime soon.

2010:  Last but not least, 2010 had 3,082 large fires reported while it remained at 44,217 acres destroyed.  It is considered to be the second lowest in number of acreage burned than years all except 2013.

Las Vegas NV | Major MCI | Police Not Ruling Out Act of Terrorism

Las Vegas NV | A unknown woman reportedly drove her vehicle on Las Vegas Boulevard in front of Planet Hollywood on to the sidewalk mowing down a large group of people, killing one.

The driver initially hit the group of people and fled the scene attempting to elude Officers.   The unidentified female driver was stopped on Flamingo and taken into custody by Police.

Police say they have no motive why she would drive into a group of people then flee.  They say they are not ruling this out as an act of terrorism.  Drug/Alcohol impairment tests have been conducted.  No word on the results.

Thirty-seven victims involved in tonight’s #VegasMCI:

  • 26 Injured
  •   4 Treated and Released
  •   7 Critical

As usual, some media and bloggers were reporting & reposting misinformation saying multiple people were killed.

The Incident Commander [IC] requested the Emergency Operations Center’s Command Vehicle [CV] respond to the scene for coordination.

At the time of this post, source for our story is via the Las Vegas Metro PD on youtube.com / https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=StUQHdQqlSk [KTNV Channel 13 TV]

Commentary:

“Kudos to 1st Responders for getting to the scene quickly and immediately enacting the ICS protocol.  Amazing work everyone.

To the families, friends and communities affected by this tragedy, you all are in our thoughts and prayers.”

Correction: Illegal Burn Call Lures Firefighters to Hostage Situation

Ohio | According to Sources, sometime tonight a fire crew was dispatched to an illegal burn / grass fire on Hornyak in Amherst, located just outside of Cleveland.  When they arrived, something very wrong occurred. Reports of two to three firefighters were being held hostage by the suspect at gunpoint.

Sources say that the suspect was just taken into custody around 1831 PDT  this evening [West Coast time] without any injuries to firefighters or to the gunman.

The Ohio turnpike and other surrounding roadways are slowly being reopened.

OUR COMMENTARY

Though we don’t the exact details of this incident, we were very concerned just like the rest of y’all. We were busy working to get details on this story and will provide another post when new info is received.

We are happy that all parties involved are okay and saddened that some people feel threatened by Public Safety by luring them out to  harm them. We hope this young man/woman gets the mental help they need and accept the consequences for his actions.

Every day, Firefighters put their lives on the line for complete strangers. According to a source stating in 2012 [paraphrased], “Firefighters have one of the most highest rates of injuries and illnesses of all professions.  They are exposed to collapsing walls, fire, toxins, smoke, traffic accidents and other dangerous scenes.”  This source did not include the many incidents where Firefighters have been injured by their patients or being lured out into the open like this event. Though it has been reported in several cases, we don’t believe it to be the norm in most cases – or, at least we hope it isn’t the norm.

Kudos to Law Enforcement helping resolve this incident without injury to one of their own, fire crews or to the suspect.

CORRECTION:  We inadvertently reported Firefighters were from Amherst but instead they are from South Amherst which was brought to our attention.  We apologize for the error.
