The Risner Fire

 My neck of the woods in Southern California had a pretty big brush fire this past week. I was surprised it even made national news-and was trending on Facebook!

 The fire was called the Risner Fire (after a park that's literally right by the fire) and was located in a contentious stretch of land called Coyote Hills. It has been the subject of a fight for over 40 years to build property on it. A transient was arrested a few days ago for allegedly starting the fire while living in a homeless encampment on the property. (Coyote Hills is hundreds of acres, so it's no shock to hear of homeless camping out there.)

 Here are some photos of the damage from the side of the road:
