Less than 4 miles away and burning out of control for three days 1,200 acres burned before firefighters were able to contain it. This was our view from the ridge. was the view from our ridge..... Total fire personnel 1,016, 88 engines, 37 fire crews, 4 air tankers, 6 helicopters, 7 bulldozers and 14 water tenders.
Fortunately, there were no deaths involved. One barn was destroyed and 250 homes evacuated... Pretty hairy, but we have gained some valuable knowledge about an escape plan and what we would take with us.
