foothill fire

i didn't drive down to town today, so i haven't seen it, but i guess the fire burned over 1500 acres and closed down the highway overnight. i'm hearing helicopters overhead now, which means either that there's another fire further up in the mountains or that they're just checking to make sure that last night's fire is completely out...

we haven't had the fires that Southern California has had this summer so far, but the late heavy rains certainly created plenty of fuel. a lush winter creates the potential for a dangerous summer fire season.
