Every year at this time we get terrible brush fires in Southern California. This year was no different. There we 3 terrible fires within 4 days that destroyed 100s of homes. We are always so sad at the losses people suffer. My husband was on the Sylmar fire for 5 days with little sleep. He is such a trooper and loves his job. A fellow fire-fighter found this picture on the LA times of my husband with a hose on a 2-story house in Sylmar. Not often you can get a picture like this, so I thought it was worth posting.
