They should pay an extra tax to live out in the wildreness or they should not allow them build in certain areas. "They" put lives, large amounts of money and resources at risk!

You didn't read the article, did you? It said the trees were "exploding". Of course the trees and wildlife are gonna get hurt!

The wilderness? It's about 1 mile from downtown Santa Barbara and about 2 miles from the beach... LOL. Not exactly out in the "wilderness".

What does this have to do with Obama? Have you ever been to Montecito? It is dripping with old, conservative white people. McCain country.

BUT, it is in a forest and where do wild fires burn? In a forest, DUH. Build a home in a forest and expect nature to take it's course, I have no sympathy for them.

That is such a dumb argument... there aren't too many places that aren't succeptable to some sort of natural disaster; tornados, hurricanes, floods, earthquakes fires, tsunami's, etc etc. By your logic nobody should build a house anywhere.
These people built in an area where fire is a risk. Everyone in that area knew this and were prepared... which is exactly why no one was killed. But to be callous to the ponit where you think these people "deserved" to be burned out of thier homes is pathetic.

I have an idea, let's laugh at anyone who gets hit by a tsunami... they should have known not to build any houses any where near the coast of the ocean :/ Jebus people, have some respect and decency for your fellow Americans.

Sappy, please quote where I stated they DESERVED to be burnt out of their houses. I did state nature would take its course and they had to EXPECT forest fires, in a forest.
By the way, perhaps you should purchase a dictionary and learn to spell.
"SUCCEPTABLE"? Could you mean susceptible?
"Tornados"? Could you mean Tornadoes?
"PONIT"? Could you mean Point?
"Thier"? Could you mean Their?
