John Mayer's Real Estate Blog: Controlling Fire in Florida

Controlling Fire in Florida

Controlled burns take place every year in Brevard County, Florida in order to minimize the danger from wild fires in the summer. Insurance claims in 2008 were high and troubled arsonists seeking attention didn't help. Many conservationists oppose the burns saying a lot of animals that can't escape are destroyed. It's a hard decision to make but in the end, natural out of control fires decimate both wildlife and property indiscriminately.

I thought I would share these photos I took with the AR community.

Fire, Sun and Water on the Banana River in Cape Canaveral, Florida. Merritt Island and Cocoa are in the distance.

This shot was taken from an airboat on the St. John's River near Titusville.

Some good news! Rates on 30-year-fixed mortgages fell to 5.04 percent this week, declining along with bond yields and easing concerns over inflation.

John - Those are a couple of great photographs, the first one is great with the clouds around the sun.

John: I just love the first shot - Love the boat, pier and gulls in the distance.
