"However, I have heard and read reports for a couple of years now that controlled burns such as we do here in florida have been blocked by tree huggers (environmentalists) in CA for years."

We have having controlled burn here for years. I don't know where you are getting your information, but for San Diego county, it is incorrect.

Their role was really limited. Efforts were made to create pathways to fight fires. The "tree huggers" were sidelined because of the preponderance of evidence that the concentration of trees created a fire hazard that would have caused an environmental crisis which would have affected the quality of air. From this it goes on to the impact of wildlife.

Show some sympathy guys. There's nothing wrong with being compassionate about a family losing their homes.

California is loaded with trees and greenery. You have your balance of "tree huggers" and "I don't give a hootenanny about the environment". Nonetheless, there are families who have lost everything. I happened to know of one.

The environmentalist (the section called "tree huggers") have been kept at bay for awhile. Their focus now is on "going green". What I'm saying is that with or without the "tree huggers" nothing would have prevented this from happening.

Yes it is the homeowners and lawmakers fault...no doubt about that. 40% of the home burned had fires started from sparks on the roof...the percentage will go higher once all the reporting is in. Can you say Tile roof, it will not burn. The solution is for the insurance industry to deny coverage unless the laws are changed and codes met to prevent the fires. Just what they have done in FL for hurricanes. Not fool proof but certainly limits the damage.

Actually, there are city and county ordinances regarding clear space around homes. I don't know the specifics, but I believe it is at least 30 feet.

Destin, I find it difficult to believe you have lived as long as you have being that almost everything you say is wrong. Unless you have seen one of these fires up close, you have no idea of the destructive power.

I do know a tile roof and brick/rock siding with steel studs will not burn from the inside out unless you have trees on top and too close to the house, if you have a proper clear space and water management(sprinkler for the yard as well as toward the house). They have shown many home is the area that are properly done, they have not burned and the Fire officials have applauded them. Since they burn up homes every year in CA, seems to me people are stupid for not protecting themselves OR making better codes and laws.

i'm more of an east coaster. But believe me you're not shackled with any more HOA rules than there are in florida. I thought florida was the only place in the world that had nazi's for hoa presidents.

May I suggest a tile roof and fire resistant siding? Like brick, rock or composite? Seems most of the home would have been saved if that had been a building code.

I get your point, I just disagree with your central premise.
