The mountain has been on fire before but it never created much of a problem for the homes. I took a picture of the fire on my way to work. The picture is actually very beautiful. If shows the sun shining with the blaze and smoke behind it.
As I headed toward the mountain, I could see that it was blazing on the side across from me. As I turned toward my side you could see areas of concern but not as bad as the other side. I pulled into my neighborhood and saw people on my street placing their valuables (mostly family pictures) into their cars, just in case.
