While my wife and I are not currently living in a wildfire danger zone, we do have an interest in heading towards the mountains at some point in the future. With as much as we know about wildfires, I find it curious how many people who own property out in the mountains seem to be somewhat disinterested in doing all that they can to mitigate the risks specific to their property.
