    Everything turned out fire for us, i guess thankfully Ventura County enacted some really strict rule/regs for home building in the county. Guess my entire neighborhood was build with fire retardant materials. Didnt stop the fire from burning up some toy haulers/trailers though.
    Leaving work. My house is the origin point.





    looking out my front door to the right.






    getting close.


    up my street to the left. Lots of haulers and propane tanks. no bueno


    pano view on my way back into the office. far left smoldering area is my neighborhood, far right is where it had swept by 11:30.
