The fire was on the side of the freeway right before the southbound Woodside/84 offramp, very suspicious for a cigarette butt thrown out of a car window... The FD was on it with several rigs and a helicopter and had it put out right away.. Love them!!

Is Woodside planning to remove any of the eucalyptus trees along main roads as Portola Valley has done, to reduce fir hazards? Where can we find out about this?
