As Right-Wingers Block Evacuation Routes, “Antifa” Lead Relief Efforts in Oregon

Law enforcement agencies in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States are struggling to dissuade people from buying into conspiracy theories alleging extremists are starting many of the wildfires currently ravaging the area.

A number of social media posts on Facebook and other sites allege without evidence that “antifa” is purposely starting the fires, either as a means to destroy communities or to loot homes after owners evacuate the areas. The posts have been proven to be without merit as there is absolutely no indication that activists who identify as antifa or any organization associated with these activists are setting fires to achieve such ends.

“Antifa” is not even a formalized organization but rather a term used to describe individuals who espouse an ethical set of beliefs in opposition to fascism. Still, posts on Facebook alleging the fictional group is setting the fires continue to persist.

I love #risk analysis. Unfortunately, we can only see its effects when it is utterly broken.

Gregg Favre auf Twitter: „After my last tweet, I got a couple DMs asking firefighting related questions about the #NotreDameFire. I -like most of you- are watching from a world away.

Sécurité Civile Fr auf Twitter: „#NotreDame @PompiersParis Le largage d'eau par avion sur ce type d'édifice pourrait en effet entraîner l'effondrement de l'intégralité de la structure. Aux côtés des #sapeurspompiers qui font actuellement le maximum pour sauver #NotreDame.“ / Twitter

For #Trump you can't drop water from air on the scene, the whole walls would collapse from the weight.

Firefighting aircraft ‘increasingly ineffective’ amid worsening wildfires - Los Angeles Times


TL;DR; There was strong wind which made it dangerous to fly and would have had not really an effect on the huge fire
