As devastated homeowners in Stockton cleaned up after Tuesday's fire that destroyed 30 homes, area firefighters were already moving on to face more fires on Wednesday.

Woodbridge Fire Chief Michael Kirkle went home from work Tuesday, then turned around and at 5 a.m. Wednesday headed south, leading a five-engine strike team to Monterey County. Other San Joaquin County crews, including some who had started at the Stockton fire, returned at 2 a.m. Wednesday from a 6,400-acre Sacramento fire.

    My sympathies go out to those that lost their home. However every year the fire departments tell people to clean weeds and brush away from their homes. Maybe it's a case of it's not going to happen to them because every year homes are lost because brush or weeds were not cleared.Great job to the firemen.
