It has just been 'hero stuff'

Posted @ 6:43 AM

"What we've seen in the last couple of hours has just been hero stuff," said M.J. Masschka, who has spent the last two days at Steele Canyon High School in Rancho San Diego.

She spent tonight in a folding chair in the school's parking lot in front of her RV watching flames on the ridge above her.

Some of the flames, she said, fire officials explained to her were set by fire crews as a defense.

"They said we were going to see a light show to beat hell, and it was beautiful," Masschka said.

Not only that, she said, but a resident of Campo Road gave her a $350 bottle of wine in exchange for keeping his birds in the shower of her RV.
