This is the front of our little dwelling, with our beautiful metal roof and then after Sep 12, the Valley fire. Our well house in in the right hand corner of this photo, the burnt remains. The fire swept around our house, and was saved by the 100 foot clearance, but also the metal roof. There is a trampoline on the left of the house that was potted with holes from burning embers that fell. They would have fallen on the metal roof too.
