Remembering the Cedar Fire ten years later

Shortly after I began writing about wildland fires five years ago, I heard about the Cedar Fire which burned something like 280,000 acres +/- near San Diego. I believe that it still is the largest fire in California history. October, 2013 marks ten years since this fire. Fifteen people died and over 2,200 homes were destroyed in this Santa Anna wind driven fire. To read more about this fire see this article from the Ramona Patch (and another link to the video that I embedded above).
