We need to do away with the fireplace in the Southern California area. I think at Europe Ontario with the winter, they need the fireplace.

January 16, 2014 Colby Fire summation.

It was apparent from first hand reports that the fire was out of control and had over whelmed Glendora's responders, both fire department and police in the first thirty minutes of the burn starting.

Had it not been for intercity or agency corporation to send safety personal and equipment to fight the Colby fire the out come would have been far worse in loss of homes, property with lives could have been lost from the swift moving fire front as it sweep across the foothills, traveling East to West at such a rapid pace.

On the ground personal could not keep up with it, aviation support help and in some cases stopped the fires advance on structures and homes.

Hey moron, I was literally standing in the middle if the fire storm. There were fire personnel on scene and in my front yard taking care of things. You clearly were not there or were observing from a long distance away from in the bushes with your buddy Ed. In other words shut your mouth. You have no idea what you are talking about.

Mother complained about forceful acts against her, so the son has to fight the war. When we go to fix it, they are declared NUT cases. Then there is the touching, looking, talking law.

There is the NUT house, Jail house, Gun issues as well.

As usual the Glendorans think it would never happen to them.
Thus no preparation for prevention.

Dude.... You are talking out of your a$$ my friend. You have not a clue about anything regarding this fire. You weren't there up close and in the middle of it. Glendora PD and LA County fire did an exceptional job.

More incident reports are pointing towards the complete break down and failure by the Glendora management when it came tofire prevention and control, January 16, 201 fire that blew out of control and above and beyond the experience level of the hacks under Chris Jeffers command.

A meeting will be held at the Bidwell Forum, a location on city hall grounds to go over and tell more lies by Glendora.

The city of Glendora, California has no choice in the matter.

Hill side and housing remediation will be taken care of by them or the Federal and State government will step in and take over the process that is demanded by law.

If the city manager wasn't so lazy in the first place and was doing his job there would be this large scale destruction in the first place.

When a city attorney can wait a month or two past a dead line to remove brush and weeds on his property for the past eight years, then this shows the contempt for the law and the rest of his neighbors and residents of Glendora, California.

So the city manager and his underlings are running as fast as they can to keep up with reality of knowing they are behind and still running in circles.

- "Hill side and housing remediation will be taken care of by them or the Federal and State government will step in and take over the process that is demanded by law."

Who do you think that the US Forestry Service and the USGS is?? They are part of the federal government! They are involved and have been since the start! It is not the responsibility of the City of Glendora to remediate private property. 85% of the burn area is on private property with the remainder on public land and national forest. I commend the city for offering consultation and support to any private property owner who asks for it.

- "If the city manager wasn't so lazy in the first place and was doing his job there would be this large scale destruction in the first place."

I'm not sure what this means, but Los Angeles County Fire has always been in charge of enforcing brush clearing. They are up there every year inspecting properties in the fire danger areas for proper brush clearance. You don't have your brush cleared by May 1st and you get fined. It's been that way for a LONG time. I live in the burn area. I can assure you that they do come out and inspect.

- "When a city attorney can wait a month or two past a dead line to remove brush and weeds on his property for the past eight years, then this shows the contempt for the law and the rest of his neighbors and residents of Glendora, California."

A) What are you doing creeping around the city attorney's house? B) how do you even know where he lives? Seems a little creepy to me dude! Again, this falls under the jurisdiction of Los Angeles County Fire to enforce brush clearance.

- "So the city manager and his underlings are running as fast as they can to keep up with reality of knowing they are behind and still running in circles."

Ummm... no. You obviously did not pay attention last night. The city leaders and city staff clearly have this situation under control. Having a plan like they have in place in the relatively short amount of time that they have had is pretty impressive, especially given that they are working with 5 or 6 other government agencies to coordinate their efforts. Your illogical and seething hatred for the city manager and city council is obvious and has most definitely prevented you from objectively looking at the situation.
