hi eagle

It's that challenging, fire-prone time of year that earned California it's name, which in Spanish means 'hot furnace'. It has it's good side, but some people have lost their homes to the http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AXICh5i99PM.

One family activated their irrigation sprinklers before they evacuated their home. Although the fire melted the irrigation pipes, the water still spouted from it's source and kept the house from being destroyed.

When Maurizio Barattucci pulled up Friday morning to the Santa Barbara home he had evacuated the night before, he saw the following scene: To the left, six houses burned to the ground. To the right, four more. In all, 15 homes in his immediate neighborhood were destroyed.

In front of him, still standing, was his house, covered in ash. Water was running everywhere. Barattucci, 69, and his wife, Rochelle Barattucci, 70, had left their old-fashioned yard sprinkler running when they evacuated Thursday evening. The pipes had melted during the fire, but the sprinkler had done its job. The sprinkler system had come with the 1924 house on Camino Alto, and it had saved them once before, in the Coyote fire of 1977.

"We were actually the only ones on the street that survived that fire, and it just happened again," Barattucci said.

Are you okay and your home is fine?

Yes, I'm okay and my home is fine. All the air in the neighborhood has the smell of smoke though. It's been like that most of the afternoon.

I'm hoping for the best for you. Be safe and alert! How close are the fires to you?

About 15 miles.

That seems pretty safe for now. Hopefully the Santa Ana winds are in your favor. :angel:

The winds are picking up now and they are forecasted to increase tonight. I'm not in the evacuation area. I'm watching the news report on television. I can smell more smoke as the wind increases.
