Fire at Area 51 Video is a Whole Lot of Nothing

•May 5, 2016 • Leave a Comment

Recently UFO enthusiasts were all abuzz over a youtube video that tracks back to August 2012, which was an active wildfire season in Nevada and that’s exactly what the video footage presents; a wildfire/brushfire that behaves and appears like the hundreds of other brush fires I worked on as a wildland firefighter for many years.

There is dark/black smoke in the video, which is not unusual. Whenever a fire gets into a heavy patch of brush or timber, greater fuel moisture is released, as opposed to lighter fuels like grass that hold less moisture, thus lighter colored smoke. Basic fire behavior stuff.

This does not dismiss the possibility of toxic or radioactive crap at Area 51. In fact, back in 2005 there was a wildfire there I heard about from some firefighter buddies. Enroute to the fire, the firefighters were briefed by base security that photography was not allowed. The crews were also briefed on a critical area they needed to keep the fire from reaching, although they weren’t privy to the exact nature of the hazard in question, which suggests perhaps radioactive material, or perhaps the crash of some experimental something or other. Need-to-know kind of stuff.

While battling the fire, one of my firefighter chums didn’t see any base security folks around anywhere and so he thought, what the hell, I’ll snap off a few quick photos. As their crew was leaving the fire, my buddy was stopped and his camera confiscated, so it was evident that the firefighters were being monitored by drones or some other type of long distance surveillance while out on the fireline.

Also the suggestion that the mushroom cloud is unusual is based simply on the observation of the guy who filmed the video. A mushroom, or pyrocumulus cloud, is basically just a reaction of what happens when the smoke column lifts into the upper atmosphere, meets cooler air and then flattens out. In essence hot air rises until it hits a band of cooler air and then it “caps out.” Often on these large fires you will see ice caps at the top of a pyrocumulus cloud.

Also, there are camo dudes in the video which has led some to speculate that the fire, once again, was caused by something unusual, or that it appeared unusual to the person filming it, who evidently had never seen a wildfire before. For anyone who knows the history of the area, they shouldn’t be surprised to see these camo-security Wackenhut dudes…there have been reports of these guys guarding the Area 51 perimeter going on 30 years now.

I’ve long been curious about some of the dubious history surrounding Area 51 and the supposed base at Dulce, which I’m not going to get into here, other than to state that I still track the different players who help promote these stories, one of whom is John Lear who appeared the other night on Jimmy Church’s radio show. In passing, Church mentioned the Area 51 fire  video and Lear said it was caused by a saucer crash, although it was evident  that Lear hadn’t even seen the video prior to Church bringing up the topic. But that’s how these stories gain traction in the wild and wooly world of Ufology where critical thinking is often at a premium.
