structures which could quickly be inflated or tossed up and the gel help protect them against the flames, since it's mostly water. I think I might even want to be sprayed with that stuff before going into fight the fire.
In what has become a common place thing out West is the re-occurrence of forest or wild fires. Sadder still is to find out that 19 fire fighters have given of themselves the final sacrifice. They didn't survive the fire racing towards them.
If even they couldn't make it and what is to be only the early part of the fire season, then I hope no one else has to pay that final price for the protection of homes and lives.
