Thomas Fire in Ventura California & Other SoCal December Fires

Hundreds of homes destroyed or threaten in Ventura, 100 miles Northwest of Los Angeles in the Thomas Fire. Winds (dry, from the northeast)) sustained at 30-40 mph over the region means it's going to get worse. It's growing at about an acre per second.
This is Metabunk related as a new type of conspiracy theory sprang up with the Napa fires - that they were caused by DEWs (Directed Energy Weapons) shot from space. However the reasons for this fire are mostly weather related. High winds, low humidity, lots of fuel from the rains last season, no recent rain. So there's no need to invoke magical causes. It is likely that people still will, so I think it's important to note the real reasons for the fires.

Wind conditions on the ground:

Winds in context. Brown is low humidity.

Winds are forecast to get stronger through the afternoon. Minor improvement tomorrow, then high winds again on Thursday will make the fires near impossible to control.

Fire danger conditions are over a wide area. Other fires are happening, and more are very possible. There's the 4,000 acre Creek fire, closer to LA

And now The Rye Fire, 500 acres north of Los Angeles near 6 Flags Magic Mountain. It's going to be a long next few days for the firemen.

(repeating similar information, but from a (another) native to the fire area, and personal experience)

I've been in SoCal my whole life. Every couple of years or-so we get wildfires.
Most of our fires come in July, August, Sept, the hottest (and driest) time of the year. These fires become out-of-control because the dry Santa Ana winds that also show-up during this time.

December this year was "late" for a dry Santa Ana event, but the fire susceptibility for this year was in place since July.....we just didn't have winds until December, and no rain so far this season.

All Cal Fire (and all other) officials were warning us that this year could/would be particularly dangerous. This was due to large rainfall the previous rainy season that spurred large abundant growth of native and invasive weeds, brush, and annual grasses. These fire hazards became tinder-dry, as they had all summer to dry-out, with no rain.
If the annual winds had come in August, then we'd see fires in August.
This year, winds did not happen until Dec., but the danger was still in place.
Add to the Dec winds..... extremely low humidity. (5-15%)

Even though the winds have since subsided, the low humidity has not.and the brush and forest in the Thomas area fire swath, has not burned in 50 years.

If you look at the history of California fires, you will see many such large fire events, and nearly all of them were during this period of dry Santa Ana winds. It's devastating, but somewhat predictable.

It's important to note the similarities in past fires, because there are so many.

1961 Bel Air fire, dry Santa Ana winds took almost 500 homes.
After that fire, wood-shake roofing was said to lend a hand to the loss of homes, as well as to the (now extended) brush cut-back brush clearance around homes.

So true.
There's that special segment of people who try to equate any news event to gov't deception.

It's like a "Where's Waldo" game to find evil gov't deeds. Even when Waldo is not found, he is found, by suspicion and invention.

What can be done about this game ? Maybe may have to be played-out until the suspicions fail to materialize..... or until boredom sets-in. But this can take years.
