Brad Paola, a resident of 145 El Cielito Rd. since 1989, estimates he lost $10,000 worth of tools after his garage was destroyed by the fire. "Many things will be difficult to replace," Paola notes, that as the house survived and he and his wife evacuated safely he considers himself, "very fortunate."

Donna Tobin watched her Las Alturas Rd. home burn from down on East Cota St. while talking on the phone to son Derek, one of the Westmont students trapped on campus in the shelter of the auditorium. Her home was a complete loss but she is grateful everyone is okay.
