Watching the news coverage last night and this morning the one thing in my mind and heart was the safety of the people involved whether it's home owners, neighbors or the brave firefighters fighting this fire with all their might. They have reported that only one life was lost thus far, my hope is that it stays at that number and does not increase as time goes on. I also hope that these brave fighters are being rotated so that exhaustion doesn't partner up with this furious fire. I have posted before about how home owners can try and prevent something like this from happening by simply running a hose line over your house that would act as a sprinkler of sorts to keep the home damp while the fire rushes by. In the end a lot will be lost but the families will continue living together safe and sound.
