Knotty Pine GAZETTE - Wildfires Ravage the West

Here's some news that would definitely be affecting life in and around Knotty Pine:

Extreme heat and drought throughout the west have spawned massive wildfires in at least 8 different states. Hundreds of square miles of forest and grasslands have been burned so far. The forest service's fleet of planes used for fighting forest fires has dropped dramatically from 44 planes down to the present 11 planes. To make matters even worse, many of the remaining 11 planes are so old they are in danger of breaking up in flight because their metal frames are old and fatigued. One forest service plane crashed last year during a wildfire killing the three fire fighters aboard.
