Areas within a couple of hours from my home (California) sadly, have been threatened by fire... I may have chosen the safest and least problematic residence, while abroad... Image above: private water access. -Fortunate choice, after two close fires in the last year!
And wow! Remarkable footage (below) of a good Samaritan, as he puts out spot fires in an evacuated zone... And as flames and cinders travel with the ferocity of the wind; he saves a home from destruction!
An exhausting endeavor... Worth the view!
Though noble, this might not be so safe... Marines say that a house fire can get up to 1,200-1,800 degrees Fahrenheit... This grill can climb to 2,200 degrees & possibly 2,400 degrees on a hot day. (almost two times hotter!)
Speaking of Marines...
Troop's boots are on the ground, as soldiers and fire-fighters put out hundreds of fires in much of L.A/San Diego area...
Including Camp Pendleton (Marine Base!)
100% contained - FINAL!! ... Pendleton fire, didn't stand a chance!
