The fire last summer was on the far West side of town, this one is on the East side and much closer to us. Many million dollar homes have been lost. No estimate on damage or cause.
OH MY, Jennifer!!! That IS scary!!! Aren't most of the fires started from cigarettes? So senseless!!! I remember many years ago, we were vacationing in California, and driving in Malibu. There was a fire burning expensive homes there. A lot of actors and other famous people's multi-million dollar homes were being destroyed. I remembered Goldie Hawn's was one. Any way, we watched Stephen Spealberg's burn down. It was on the beach. So sad!!!
