What did they do to deserve this?

From the New York Times:

Mr. Tohsakul, a television news program manager, rested assured on Monday that the fire was miles from his house after viewing scenes of the area shot by one of the station’s cameramen. But on Tuesday afternoon, he sat in his driveway taking deep breaths at the sight of the roof caved in and his possessions charred.

“What did I do to deserve this?” he said, looking at several unscathed homes next to his. “It’s just unbelievable.”

Given where you live sir, I would say that there is a good chance that you voted for environmentalist wacko politicians (mostly Democrats) who opposed common sense fire control measures like cutting away underbrush and cutting firebreaks because of their "environmental impact".

Some of what is going on in California is a simple matter of reaping what has been sown.
