Only been down this road once, and it was hell on wheels for the fire crews. Brought up my motor home so they had a place to sleep, guys flaked out on the carpe,t and hoses running through my/neighbors yards.
I couldn't cook food fast enough to keep them feed. Neighbors running to Safeway ( Albertson's?) to get more stuff. BBQ's on the street/back yard where operational for close to 72 hours. Washing machines going 24/7 to give them clean clothing.
End game was fire out (7,000 some acres of grass/trees) and we/they had one hell of a Block Party.Lots of us got very drunk.
