... although I was a little disappointed in their response time. Given that there are 2 stations within 2 miles on the same road, I would think that they would have arrived in less than the 15-20 minutes it took them.

Anyways, I was awaken at 4am by what sounded like a gorilla size torch lighter going off. I went to my window to find a wall of fire exteding down the property line. It was no more than about a minute from the time that I got up, called 911, and ran outside. Luckily, I woke up in time to stop the fire from spreading... since the pine needles and leaves were very dry. If it had been just a couple minutes later, I probably would have been awaken by the house being on fire.

It ends up the neighbor's propane tank on the grill had a rupture. I'm assuming that some type of flying debris caused a spark and ignited the fumes. The flame shot pretty far down the fence. The area around the fence was on fire, as well as the neighbors hot tub. I've included a photo showing the area. The dark area around the fence up to the houses shows where the fire was.

I'd just like to remind everyone to becareful with their gas grills, or this can happen.

You sure one of the SoCal crew that meets at poker's every Saturday wasn't in town to start that?

Whenever it drops below 70 degrees they have to start up the fire pit to keep from freezing. :D

PS: Glad you're OK Bran. Scary stuff. :D
