Thank God for those brave firefighters, that neighborhood could have lost 10 homes.

"..that neighborhood could have lost 10 homes."
Drive down the street. Large lots, well irrigated (never a drought in A-town!) There was zero chance of any sort of 'firestorm' taking multiple homes.
Your hyperbole is duly noted. Reality notes that Engine 3 was about 900 meters away from the fire - Station 3 is literally a block away at 32 Almendral.
Brave first responders? Yes. Well trained, equipped and well distributed resources? Ding, ding, and ding.
Talk of closing houses or engine companies (talking to you, shallow alto) is folly.
Peter: your turn. Any word on cause and why it became involved so fast (for a carport)?

The point is the fire department responded quickly and quickly put the fie out. Yes well trained and well equipped. What did you think you were paying for.
