  1. Who started this fire? Most fires do not start by themselves! This is the wetlands area! That’s all we need with so much happening with the Chinese virus! Now all we just need some crazy firebug causing havoc!

    • Yes, that is the last thing we need. As much as the last thing we need is people labeling COVID-19 the “Chinese virus”. It only serves to stoke anti-Asian sentiment. You may feel justified because it began in China but labeling it this way is increasing hate crimes and hate speech against Asian Americans and Asians in general. It is unfair and irresponsible. Donald Trump has even said he will stop using the term. Keep up. Stay safe.

      • ”You may feel justified because it began in China but labeling it this way is increasing hate crimes” name one hate crime snowflake–

        • You wouldn’t believe it anyways because the crimes are being reported by the “Liberal” media. Is snowflake the best you got? How original.

    • Hopefully not, but it was possibly one of the many bums that call that turf home. They do as they please with no caution. I think they like being little firebugs. More fires to come I’m sure.

  2. In China they are convincing the people the US sent the virus as a weapon. If we lose the battle over where the virus came from then China will gain a huge advantage with the rest of the non-western nations. China or Wuhan virus is a necessary label.
