Scripps Ranch, San Diego, California, is an upscale neighborhood within the City of San Diego. The October 2003 Cedar Fire destroyed the southern part burning over 300 homes. The photograph shows the tremendous force of wildfires. These fires required substantial amounts of manpower, a large and varied equipment inventory, and quick-response air support to successfully contain and extinguish.
In this photograph of the Scripps Ranch fire you can see the Grim Reaper smiling within the smoke and flames.
