In California we have 2 things here that we, mid-western transplants had to learn about- earthquakes and fires. This scene took place on the hillside right by our hill...but don't worry, this is what we have learned is called a "controlled burn". There is a training facility for both police and fire. Every year, the fire"men" use the hillside to learn how to set and put out fires. The first year we lived here (6 years ago) this startled us...nothing like looking out your bedroom window and seeing a lot of black smoke. Now we know.
Sorry for the quick post...but just wanted to share this with you before running the boys to camp and me to work! Lisa
