August 4th, 2009 was certainly a scary day for all of us in Glenoaks Canyon. After getting a call at work from my wife that our canyon was on fire and having to hike up to our house from Harvey, I thought the worst. Thanks to all the brave firefighters and helicopter pilots that fought the blaze, all our homes are safe. I will post more photos and add more to this post later. I saw a lot of canyon residents with cameras. If you have any photos from yesterday, please email them to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) so that we can create a visual archive of this event.
Again, on behalf of GOCHA, we are so thankful that everyone is safe and that no homes were destroyed in the fire.
