From Sandra Silvestri:

“Kate – The fire is at the property next door to our vineyard. My brother is there taking video and it seems the firemen have it under control. They’ve been taking water from our vineyard pond in the helicopter.

Just thought you’d like to know. Ill let you know if I hear anything different.

Sandra”

  1. I apologize, I need to do the final update. It is out. One garage/barn and 2 cars destroyed, but the house was saved, and all residents were fine.

  2. Article says 10-27-18 – typo I’m sure, just took me by surprise. You might want to edit. 🙂

  3. BSK, those are some super clean images- glad everyone is safe- thanks for the reports, my ears still recovering from all the sirens blazing.. Good job all involved saving what ya could and aiding the blaze from spreading.
