Flames of the Brush Fire

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Brush fires are very common here and the fire authorities do an excellent job of protecting private property and rarely are any lives lost. This was a small fire that was contained quickly.

During "fire season", thousands of acres can burn in a matter of hours and fires can last for days or sometimes weeks. Fire fighters come from all over the world EVERY year to fight our fires and we are grateful.

Brush fires are part of the natural cycle here and burn areas recover quickly if they aren't washed out during the "rainy season" which follows "fire season", causing devastating landslides.
