This is presented non-commercially as a dramatic and entertaining, yet respectful educational document in view of the fact that such an event is one that involved great loss for too many, but yet is one that we all have some shared curiosity in seeing. I hope that my use of the word "entertainment" will be seen as delicately as I intended it.

Thanks to my family for carefully avoiding bumping the tripod that has been on our deck for the last week, and especially mom who has been incredibly helpful in reminding me to check the camera battery.
Thanks also and again to the innumerable caring people who are fighting or documenting this fire in their various ways for the protection of our wonderful community.
