Earthquake rattles Southern California

Associated Press
Martin Diky claimed that he panicked when a wildfire raced down the slope towards his wooden home near Lake Tahoe. This material can withstand intense heat for short periods and is similar to tin foil from your kitchen drawer, but it's inspired by the tent-like shelters wildland firefighters use to protect themselves from being trapped by flames. Diky, who lives in San Francisco Bay Area most of the year, purchased $6,000 worth wrapping from Firezat Inc. San Diego. This was enough to cover his 1400-square foot (130-meter) second residence on the edge the small California community Meyers.
