Progress On The Fires

FireCNN has its fire summary up for today. It is based on their own reporting.

Both MSNBC and CBS are using an AP story with some original reporting thrown in, usually at the end.

As long as the winds stay down, they can make some progress, but if the winds come back the fires will flare up again. So far there have been no fatalities directly related to the fires, but that could change after the affected areas are inspected more thoroughly.

Just like earthquakes, Californians expect fires when the Santa Anas begin blowing. But just like earthquakes, they expect them to happen to other people.  It is the same attitude that people on the Gulf Coast have about hurricanes.
