Saturday (6-29-13) was hot and windy in the afternoon when I heard a call-out for a grass fire at Farris Rd and Rex Road. Lots of equipment and air resources were quick to knock it down and contain it to 11.5 acres. Thanks to the brave and efficient CalFire personnel!

Mopping up the Farris incident. Looking north over Rex road, Hwy 26 is just over the hill
Looking up Rex Road, which the fire did not jump, much to the relief of the owner of this home, I’m sure.
