Many forests have designated "let burn" areas. However the Forest Service also is charged with protecting private property. With fire dynamics being what they are with high fuel densities, low moisture content, large areas of bug kill, and hot windy weather early in the year, it makes fire management a very difficult, failure prone, responsibility.|
The other thing about suppression. When fires get to a certain critical mass, there is no stopping them. You might be able to stake out a small battle area with lots of structures and use your manpower to protect them, but for he most part once fires get to a certain point, they burn until they run out of fuel, hit a major fire break, or a big weather shift occurs. Some burn until it snows.
Once monsoon season kicks up and the lightning gets going, this could really turn ugly.
