Close call ......My garage

This was caused by a smoldering pine cone kicked under the bush....
Ive yet to figure out why my kid and the neighbors kid have this infatuation with lighting pinecones on fire. Needless to say I have the neighbors permission to permanently plant my boot in whoevers kid plays with fire around my house.

Nobody got hurt but many were humbled.

BTW this all happened in about 30 seconds!

Wow, if a little bush caught fire that fast and caused that much damage, imagine those damn forest fires that break out in the dry summer in cali.
