Just as I offered the 2008 California wildfire “season” closed, friend of Firefighter Blog Big Sur Kate reported a 10 acre fire on her coast. This is surely the final punctuation mark on the most destructive wildfire season in California history.
It’s almost fitting since the largest fires of the season were centered in the central coast paradise. The Indians Fire and the monstrous Basin Complex haunted the coast throughout the summer months.
There is a symmetry here that is more fitting for an epic novel but this was real life. It’s really time to close the book on 2008.
