  1. I guess anything important like the mill can have its own people stay to fight the fire.The homes and buisinesses in Clinton don’t count.Don’t forget that the planes can’t fly if the smoke is bad.
    A Million dollars worth of antiques, a life long endevour, a home, that, contrary to what the police will tell you CAN NOT be replaced.They have to start treating people with respect and not like incompetent idiots.Little things like sprinklers on the houses at Loon lake ,or wooden power poles at Boston flats.Maybe field installation of Fire Bozz sprinklers with a 300 foot wet fire guard .They should be in place NOW!!!!not when the flames are on the outskirts of town..
    Citizens should send the wife and kids out but stay a fight for their lives.Oh ya!! where is the Marten Mars?????
