Chico Fire


It's a little small, but a faithful Chico reader sends in this pic and his thanks to the firefighters who stopped the flames before it reached his house.

Edit: The Star Telegram had a pretty good pic . . .


And the Star Telegram has posted a video taken from a helicopter.

Where in Chico was it?

On 101 north?

I cannot believe that the ST drove all the way to Chico to get that pic!

It was on my place 3 1/2 miles north of Chico. The Star Telegram beat me to it. I was at work in Bridgeport and heard about a fire near my place and decided to take an early lunch.

It was a good thing I did! I am the luckiest man in the W.C. tonight! It melted the underpinning, broke 5 windows and melted 2 gas cans full of gas sitting under my front porch but did'nt ignite them.

Other than that my house is OK.

Complete story and all my thanks on my blog.

BTW, Thanks Barry!
