These firefighters have their work cut out for them.
For a good look at the complex issues of suburban forest fires, fire safety and the environment do a Google search on "Cannonball Express" and video surf through the site I built around the script for this video project. Your comments and criticisms are welcome in the GuestBook.
I'll be in the burn area to talk to homeowners when the roads around Stevens Creek Reservoir are open again. I'm at Tahoe now talking to stakeholders involved with the $175 million Angora Fire. I've adapted the screenplay for an Alpine version and plan to be filming here next June. Wish me luck.
