What's with these fires? Every year and still the people rebuild and the insurance companies still pay. Must be some premiums?

Can anyone tell me whether Ojai is in danger from the fires? If so, is there a time forcast for evacuation? I'm not asking for clairvoyance, it's just that the national fire coverage provides little detail and I'm not familiar with the Ojai area. Thanks so much.

LOL, yeah... let's set some of the most prime real estate in the country on the "no build" list because there is a fire every 30 years that burns down 1% of the houses. Great idea... LOL!

While we're at it let's put the entire southen part of the United States in that same category.
