saw the thick black smoke at 4pm and knew it was a large fire. Only an hour from our home it was heartbreaking to watch it unfold. Wish the media would leave the poor people alone and stop asking such stupid questions when they are obviously devastated and numb with grief. The reporters would not leave the area and kept chasing people to get answers and wondered why they were told to leave me alone! When will they learn that yes we need to know the news however that is all we need to know.

Thank you Sally. Yes, always wondered myself why reporters ask cruel questions too when people are consumed with grief and suffering, especially the question- How do you feel!

Thanks Simone. Yes what do they expect the "how do you feel" answer to be?" Oh great I am thrilled that I just lost all my memories and possessions including the family pets and photos that can never ever be replaced". The reporters will never change unfortunately but it just makes me so mad that they all went to the same idiotic school of reporting!!! I think they are lucky they have not been punched on the nose before now....
