    1. My home's backyard corner touches their backyard. I am a fire captain with Orange County and was at work when the fire took place. Looking over my fence at the damage this morning, I can tell you that Riverside County / Cal Fire did a great job making an agressive attack in stopping this fire. Glad to have these guys protecting my family and home while I am at work!
