This little blurb in today's Daily Journal got me thinking
A fire in Hillsborough damaged five homes Friday evening, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office. Central County firefighters received a report of a structure fire in the 1800 block of Black Mountain Road at about 4:53 p.m., according to sheriff’s deputies. Two homes were fully involved in the fire and three nearby homes were also damaged.
Every year we hear one of two things: it was a wet year and there is more underbrush that will be fuel in the summer or it's a drought year and the dry conditions are a fire danger. Seems every year is a fire danger and perhaps the larger lots up on Black Mountain Rd. provide more fuel and more danger. But maybe we all need to pay more attention this summer...........even in the flat lands.
