Missed the live Ask the Expert event?
Not to worry. Check out the archived thread of the Q&A with Ken Hutcheson, President of U.S. Lawns, and the LawnSite community in the Franchising forum .

Bummer, hope the wind changes directions.
fingers crossed for you.
if i was the praying type i would be doing that too.
Worst thing we could hear came true. Two lives lost. Such a sad day.
Did you know them?
No names given yet. Sad to hear it. Once I learned that they lost their lives, it finally hit home. I'm trying to have a humorous attitude, but that brought me down a notch.
Have you heard if they were firefighters or residents that decide to stay and fight?
I should have researched my above question. Residents were found in a garage with the car door open- as if they were loading. Very sad.
This should be my last post on this. Fire is now 85% contained, 509 homes lost so far with more coming, 2 lives lost, 1200+ firefighters combined were here fighting it. I was evacuated last Thursday morning, and was able to return late Friday. No damage and far enough away (2 miles or so) that there was not any smoke damage. My buddy was renting the home that he lived in, and has another home he owns that he will move back to. But photos and memories are gone. Pipe puller may be a goner, not sure yet. I have heard speculation as to the cause, but I won't disclose it. All I will say is it may be accidental by a piece of machinery.
This fire danger will now be the new normal as our weather patterns have changed the last 10-12 years. I have 8 trees close to my house that need to be removed, but I still live in a forest, and the house can still go up in flames no matter how much mitigation we do. But, if my house has a defensible space, and the neighbor's do not, the firefighters will spend more effort to save mine, or so I have been told.
I am happy to hear that you and yours made it through the firestorm Dana.

I'm glad to hear the house made it through OK.
A few years ago, before our bad drought, we had a fire started near a piece of property we own in South Texas by hot ball bearings on a tractor that was shredding a field. When things get really crispy, it doesn't take much to set them ablaze.
