Beginning the 9th year of Wildfire Today

9th year Wildfire Today

Sunday the world marked the end of 2016, seen as a tough 12 months by some. But at Wildfire Today we are looking back with fond memories at the last 8 years as we begin our 9th. Our site was born January 6, 2008 with a rather modest post.

The success of the site would not have been possible without the loyal readers who come back on a regular basis, read the articles, leave insightful comments, and occasionally send us a message informing us of breaking news in the world of wildland fire.

So, a big Thank You to those who have visited or contributed in various ways over the last 8 years! We couldn’t have done it without you!

    Never commented on any site ever ‘tll now! Once a “Ground Pounder”, always a ground pounder. It’s a viceral kinda thing that most folks tucked far back into the green will never understand “Dancin’ with the Dragon”. Never forget those days, and take the time to educate those who ask the “why and how” of what goes on beyond the view of the newscast. Keep on scratchin’!
