The Martin Fire

The Martin Fire Taken From Our Back Deck

Sorry to state the obvious, but it's going to be a long and difficult fire season this year. Got a message from home that another fire has started in our area, this time over towards the ocean. As you can see, this incident is even closer and more visible to us than the last and although is smaller (so far) it nevertheless threatens more homes.

Cal Fire seems to have marshalled resources very quickly to get on top of this one but once again strong winds are making early containment difficult. No word on the cause but you have to believe it's either the carelessness or stupidity of one individual that's to blame.
