Devil Mountain In Flames!

It's no secret that over the past couple of years we have been experiencing drought-like conditions. This year has been no different. We have only received around 2 inches of rain since the beginning of the year. With the lack of rain and now the recent heat wave that we have been experiencing, the fire danger in Northern California is extremely high. Just this weekend, we had three fires in the area. The worst being the fire that is still raging on Mt. Diablo. So far, 1600 acres have burned in less than 24 hours. There are currently 250 firefighters working on extinguishing the blaze. Moreover, there have been over 50 homes evacuated. Crow Canyon Country Club is just a few miles South of where this fire is taking place.
