We have had devasting forest fires here in British
Columbia, Canada.  The TV news reports demonstrate how
devasting fire can be.  Families get evacuation 
orders, the fire sweeps by, and all their memories on
photos or computer are lost forever.  Insurance never
covers the complete loss. I find it worse when people
or animals are killed.  I wish the people well.
