Walls of fire

The burning of Southern California is a sad sight to see. The massive walls of fire are reduced to mountains of ashes after just a few hours. And the faces of those who lost their abodes can be photographed, but never described.

Oh yes it is very sad, we went through all this here in Victoria Australia last summer, very scary, I can't even imagine having to go through that, I am not sure I could cope with it...

Hi lilaclady, the Australian fire was much in the news, too. I am so sorry. I could only pray to God to keep the people safe. I also call on the angels to protect the people with their powerful wings. I am glad you survived the fire. Now I know the heavenly powers heeded my call.

The culprit is some idiot - an arsonist that investigators are looking for. There's a $100,000 reward for any tips that would lead to the arrest of this idiot. And yes we're talking greenbacks - USD - whatever you call them. It's terrible but it has happened before. They've got insurance - so I'm sure the insurance will pay them to rebuild. On a more positive note - now there's more work for construction workers since they will be hired to rebuild. Let's not all be negative about this. There's a silver lining in everything after all. Plus, us Californians - we know that it has happened before and it'll happen again. We fall - but we'll rise, we always do. God Bless California!

Yes, God bless California! I am glad that you are not disheartened. There must be some brave soul who must stand and rise again from the ashes. That is the spirit. Will be delighted to see the trees green again soon.

I am so sorry to hear that. When did the burning start? Any idea what's the cause of it?

Los Angeles and the neighboring hills had been burning for almost a fortnight already. Investigation had not come up with a conclusion with what started the fire.
