Recently I read that a number of Yarnell residents were now going to sue the town, city, state, USA, etc. for their negligence in safe guarding their properties. I also read that a tremendous amount of money was donated to assist them and that some (if not all) of their houses were being rebuilt — at no cost to them at all. Obviously, personal effects cannot be replaced, but I wonder if when they point the “finger of blame” they realize that three fingers point back to them. For instance, how many of them had insurance on their “homes in the woods?” How many adequately cleared a ‘fire break’ around their house? How many had prepared plans in case of such a fire? The loss of life through negligence is never acceptable; however, the loss of personal possessions through your negligence is your own fault! Trying to recoup your losses at others expense is wrong and jeopardizes possible future donations to others in need.
