We Love Our Firefighters

79d3f8c33d34aa02445485cc47caa98a Wildfires have transformed San Diego countryside into an otherworldly landscape.  Charring more than 26,000 acres of drought-parched brush and dozens of homes and buildings in the process. A combination of unseasonable triple-digit temperatures, extremely low d3c2a87d9d4df4b4ff3203870d018342humidity and hot winds blowing in from the desert stoked the blazes, kicking off what promises to be a historically destructive wildfire season.  If it wasn’t for the amazing men & women who commit their lives or volunteer to save ALL of our homes, lives and businesses we just might not all be here writing this blog post today.
