You don't put out forest fires with water like you do a house fire. You may use it to manage or help contain the fire, but what makes you think there is a big water supply?
Landscaping? A forest fire aftermath? Uh, I don't think so. You replant trees, or you do nothing and let nature take its course. There 'aint that much beauty bark in the universe and there's even less incentive to landscape the area. Some fires are thousands of acres large.
Fires are necessary but are in no way benign. They are horrible events that kill wildlife, plant life, and sometimes people and property. We need them and they are good in the long run, but that doesn't mean that they are nice. I'd never wish for one.
And to the OP, yes, it is looking like a pretty bad season coming on. We've already had several small fires in Western Washington where they are not so common as on the east side of the Cascades. B.C. has already been hit hard and there's lots of time left for more. It's like a tinder box out here.
