I would like to thank you both for being my biggest fans, and, of course, for not blaming these fires on a Democratic, left wing, communistic hoax hellbent on creating social disorder through the fire department.
P.s. Thank you fire fighters for all you do!!!

As a past resident of CCC from 1960 to 1972, I remember grass fires every summer. I imagine those fields and hills are now filled with houses, Home Depots, Starbucks, and MacDonald’s.
