    the new york times had an interesting piece about
    forest fire risk management that was printed on
    sunday, august 20th. their main focus revolved around
    how forestry mis-management has created an at-risk
    forest community, but they also mentioned some of the
    hazards/preventions for homeowners who wish to build
    in the dynamic forest environment.

    good luck and i hope the smoke clears soon!
