In case you're not aware, this fire has gotten completely out of
control. Where we live on the Mesa, it's fine but many areas in the
foothills are either threatened or burning.

I'm happy to report that our friend Geoff's house has made it so far.
There is still a threat and helicopters are flying above him now
dropping water, but the worst is most likely over.

I was able to shoot videos (at Geoff's request) while he attempted to
fight the embers from landing on his home. I hope you can get a feel
for the intensity of the situation.

More still shots have been added here:
