There are reports that there are several homeless encampments in the chaparral which surrounds the Village. This is a very dangerous situation. One spark and the entire Village could burn. Fish and Wildlife and the sheriff know about the encampments. Perhaps it is time for F/W to clear out these camps. There are strict regulations as part of the BMER maintenance plan and setting up camps and having cooking/warming fires is not allowed.
