Thomas Fire, Ventura

With flames on each side, a house stands threatened in the foothills of Carpinteria. The fire crews say that if high winds appear, the fight would begin with roughly a ten minute warning. That’s why these crews from Anaheim and other cities camp in “defensible positions” to establish a boundary of containment. (Currently at 15%) The devastation is so large that they are now measuring the fire in miles instead of acres. (360 Sq miles, the size of NYC and Boston.) #venturafire #SoCalFires #wildfire #firefighter #forestfire #thomasfire #binded #carpinteria #socalfire #SantaBarbarafire #montecito #anaheimfirefighters #anaheimfiredepartment #firefighters
