Snapped this from my front yard last Sunday night. Fire was at about 1/2 mile but still lit up the interior of the house. Sorry about the poor quality.

Wow.! I am so glad you and your family got away with this. It was (is) terrible to watch the horror and destruction regarding this kind of fire.

Here where I live the possibility for this is very low.

Hard to believe some of them were arson. Those Santa Anas are wierd any way. Sort of like being in a large hair drier.

That's some scary stuff, gives me the willies. I'll take an earthquake anytime over that caliber fire.
Unfortunate any way you slice it.

Picture says a thousand words. I can feel the heat of that picture.

I think it was two years ago there was a bunch of kiddies going around the outer parts of Bournemouth starting fires in woodlands that where near to some homes, fortunate the fire was put out, some five units where called in the damage was estimated around a 1 million, but don’t quote me on that, the trees where all gone and it would take 20 years for new ones to grow to fullness.

They also burnt down field near Kingson me and friend where driving around the area when we saw smoke pouring over the field, we thought it was some moron in the back garden, the fire was so close to homes as well! Not sure if the little bastards where ever caught.

If the arsonists are caught I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s half of Californians forming a lynch mob to grab these bastards.:biting:
