I had nothing to do with it
I went to Big Bear Lake today. It’s a “resort” area around a largish lake at about 2,000 meters in the San Bernardino National Forest. I say “resort” because it’s small compared to some of the large ones in Colorado. But it’s pretty anyway. It’s certainly the nicest mountain resort area that I’ve seen near Los Angeles. Which means it’s the only mountain resort area that I’ve seen near Los Angeles
About an hour after I left, a brush fire was discovered on California 18, the road I was on. I saw the fire on the news when I got back to my hotel.
Just to be clear, I had nothing to do with it. But I’m very glad I left before it was discovered, or I would have had a difficult time getting home.
