Suspicion over south coast blazes in Los Angeles County

Suspicion over south coast blazes in Los Angeles County By Bill Dortch — January 3, 2017 By Bill Dortch The city of Los Angeles County, known for its colorful, historic architecture and vibrant urban center, has been the site of several high profile fires since January. This is despite the fact that the county, a U.S. district of California, is a big source of natural resources that make life here an ideal place for wildfire activity, 우리카지노계열along with some of the highest temperatures in the country, which make the area a prime environment for fires. On Monday, January 2, a blaze ripped through a neighborhood, killing one woman and injuring more than 40 others and leaving dozens more homeless as residents and firemen were still battling a brush fire in the same area. That’s the most recent 아산안마 아산출장샵and horrific example of how far south Los Angeles County has come in the last few years. But even with the county having fewer areas with fire risk than it used to, a significant number of areas remain as «dangerous» that make fires more than a nuisance. The number of dangerous fire sites has increased in recent years because of the increased use of noncombustible fuels. There are a number of factors that can contribute to these fire risks that have been addressed or worsened with the increased use of fuelless fuels, according to a new study of California and the nation published in the journal California Energy Journal. «The issue is not just the use of noncombustible fuels; they are also contributing to the increase in the number of deadly fire hazards around the state,» lead author Eric Fuchs, a professor at University o수원안마f California, Irvine, said in a statement. «Fire-prone urban areas have been characterized as places with fire risk at high levels, but that is not the case. In fact, this trend is also driven by greater usage of noncombustible fuel.» Fuchs and his co-author, UC Irvine professor Christopher Llewellyn, studied data from 2001 and 2011 from the US Bureau of Reclamation (which contains fire maps from its fire surveys to its Fire Safety Branch, which records incidents) that were used to examine the likelihood of fire in California as it was in 2001 and 2001. The study also includes records of fuel spills, which are the worst way to burn fuels. In 2001, there were 3,100 fires in California and there were 3,200 fires that year.
