Just got back to the States and saw the pictures. Great shots. Clare, her friends Sam and Marilyn, Tomas, and I fought this fire earlier in the week, I believe on Sunday, and kept it from crossing our road. It appeared the fire started near the bottom of the valley behind Clare's house where the cows usually graze. Then it seemed to die out. But on Tuesday we had those high winds and the embers must have ignited again. Clare and I watched this fire from the outdoor table at Magnolias on Tuesday night before I left on Wednesday morning. We saw Pepe when we were sitting there, and he was the one who informed us it was on the ridge behind our houses and not much to be concerned about.
