What street were you on where they let you get that close? I got a couple of good shots from at State College and Bastanchury; but the police would not let get to where I wanted to go which may have been a good thing...

I was driving West on Lambert and looked out my window to see the hillside on fire that leads up to Brea High School (Lambert/Pointe).
We were behind a couple of restaurants and between a large office building, so it was all asphalt where we were. As long as we stayed about 15 feet from the street, the firemen let us stay and watch and take pictures.
I learned the hard way that water drops are not exact! About 5 seconds after you think the water has hit the fire, the residual spray hits you and your camera.
Since it was mainly just brush burning where I was it was actually quite exciting. Much more sobering over in Yorba Linda where most of the homes burned.
Thanks for looking,
