This is a picture I took while in the safe zone with my family. My house was in the middle of the brite area for around 30 mins. This was at 11:30 pm when it finily drove us out. I thought the place was gone! But it was still there when I could go back in and put out the hot spots. Weting the place down was the only thing that saved it. Mark H.

After that big fire we are more determined to stay. It was only one fire in 6 years and we learned a lot from it. The family will stick it out and fight for what we have. I have made a lot of changes to the place to protect it in the future hoping we will never have to use them. The season is only a few months long and the rest of the year makes up for it. Most of the stuff that worried us burnt up in that fire ball. It was on the neibors property. It was the Grease Wood and Sage brush that burned so hot. That is all gone now and only grass is left and that is not a problem to deal with. You cut it down each year and be sure to water the plants to keep them green around any buildings you have. Trim everything back and there isn't anything to burn in a grass fire left. Mark H.
