You're right the disaster would have been similar & if not fire lit they probably would have choked from excessive smoke... I just said that because it was in the translation & I thought maybe a 2' metal stand would have helped, it looks as though some of the hives in the pic did not light up... A true tragedy thoughThe word "epic" is so overused, I was expecting something much less than "epic". Yes, that looks fairly "epic" at least in the life of that beekeeper. Wow!
>...the hives that were too close to the ground.
You think they would have burned less if they were higher?
