The 49 Fire - Auburn, CA - 30 Aug 09

On August 30, 2009, at approximately 2:22pm, a fire started in the North Auburn area that went on to destroy 340+ acres, over 60 homes, and 3 commercial buildings; many more homes and businesses were left severely damaged. We at Seven were fortunate in that while we were in the fire's path, it went above and below us on the hillside, leaving our building, at least, relatively untouched. This is just a small collection of photos of the damage in our immediate vicinity.
