At 7 p.m. on Weds the 29th In Shoreline, cinders and ashes began falling throughout my neighborhood. Smoke filled the air to the North, and a quick look around the neighborhood revealed that the island in Lake Ballinger was in flames. Trees and brush alike were alight. At the time I was there shooting photos it was not known what the source of the fire was. The Sheriff Department rescue helicopter arrived to help extinguish the flames At 8:45 p.m. the helicopter was still dropping water on the island flames, but much of the smoke had dissipated by this time.
