The two fire fighters were killed in Souther Ca, Not in the 'Controlled Burn" of Yosemite.
How about his. Here's a quote from the link. A couple were critically burned when they tried to sit out the flames in their hot tub. The pair in Big Tujunga Canyon, on the southwestern edge of the fire, "completely underestimated the fire" and the hot tub provided "no protection whatsoever," Steve Whitmore, a police spokesman, said on Sunday"
Maybe I should have posted this in idiot of the day. Who would really think they would be safe in a hot tub from a raging inferno?
Many of the fire fighter in our area, The Yosemite fire (Big Meadow fire) are coming down with Poison Oak. As if dealing with fire terrian and heat isn't enough.

Most hot tubs I've ever seen are surronded by wood decking; what were these people thinking?

I have never seen a car oozing liquid metal before. My heart goes out to all those people who lost everything, especially the two fire fighters who lost their lives.
