I know it must be tough for some people to leave their homes with a wildfire approaching, but is that garden hose really going to keep his house from burning?
Noel Rincon hoses the roof of his home in Tujunga, a suburb near Los Angeles, California, USA, on 01 September 2009. Rincon was one of many residents in the neighborhood who chose to ignore mandatory evacuation orders. The Station grew to over 122,000 acres the previous night and has destroyed fifty homes.
