    Sorry, Legal; but it was the fireman who suggested evacuation who got the big hug. It wasn't the brave team that saved the home. Read carefully.

    A big hug?!? For people that risked their lives saving the home. Since they KNOW who did it, I really hope they are planning on giving them more than a "big hug." Hats off to the brave men and women tht spend so much of their lives helping others!!

    To all the firefighters who are working even harder this summer than they usually do. The regular city crews with their trucks, the forest service guys and gals with their rough terrain vehicles, the hot shot crews (including those prison volunteers) working the handlines and shovels in the really rough areas, the helicopter crews, the crews of the light and heavy tankers, and their ground crews who keep 'em flying and filled with water and retardant. And, to the cops who keep the sightseers and looters away. And the forest service command and support teams who direct and service the young folks on the lines.

    Great Americans, all of them!

    I thought it was his back hoe that caused the fire?

    Investigation still underway? I think they got it on film.
