Woodbridge Fire officials were plenty busy coordinating the entire county's mutual aid resources.

Though Stockton was the main focus earlier Tuesday when entire houses went up in flames, crews were soon desperately needed in Sacramento County northeast of Elk Grove near Sloughhouse.

    I give it up to the fire departments, this is what they train for, this is what it's all about for them. To all you fire fighters KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!! SOME OF US REALLY APPRECIATE YOU! And hey buss owner, yeah people need to try and protect themselves, but what do you suggest? The way you sound is that it's always the peoples fault. What if they protect their property to the fullest and nature happens? What then, is the government still babysitting?

    so once again the government is to baby sit people. One CAN'T live in this valley to know we have ALWAYS had a high fire danger. Is it the fire departments fault or the residents. People need to learn to take care of themselves and not look to the government to always lookout for them.How much do you think it would cost for the fire department to baby sit each resident that won't protect the property they live on or own. When it burns those people are the first to whine for help before ever trying to help themselves.

    o.O if the City of Lodi Fire Dept is so worried about fire danger why is it that they only send a letter to the residence of a fire hazard (three feet dead long grass) but won't knock on their door to make them cut it?
