    At 9 AM a fire was caused by construction,  just above and east of our house... This is the view in between our two largest trees in the backyard.  The fire covered 30 acres.

The California Department of Forestry responded IMMEDIATELY with numerous and massive airdrops of water and flame retardent.  This guy just missed the power towers we walk our dogs under.
