The Bohemian published a great article written by a smart 10-year old Tubbs Fire survivor:

“I was a fourth grader on Oct. 8, 2017, when I woke to furious winds and I looked out the window to see fire in the yard. Our smoke alarms rang and I yelled to my parents: “Fire! Let’s get out of here!” We all rushed into the car, drove through flames, barely made it out alive and didn’t stop till we got to my Auntie’s house in Oakland.

“Days later, when I learned all my toys and home were gone, it reminded me of the book I read weeks before the fire called I Survived the Great Chicago Fire, 1871 by Lauren Tarshis. I asked my dad if we were going to rebuild like they did in Chicago. He said yes. I then asked would our house and the others in Santa Rosa be built out of brick like in Chicago? He didn’t know.”


In earthquake country, maybe reinforced concrete . . . ?
