After the Fire - Calabasas, CA

We all dread it.
There's nothing like suddenly smelling smoke from a wildfire.
 Where is it? Is it close?
This one was just a few miles away. Car accident into a power pole.

Brushfires burn hot and fast in the bone dry chaparral in Southern California. 
Our native oaks and black walnut trees have seen it before.
 They scorch, but still stand.
white ash covers the hill
the leaves may burn but the young walnuts survive
Using the highway as a firebreak, the firefighters stopped the 500+ acre blaze from burning homes and businesses.
