The recent spat of wild fires in San Diego left the drought-ridden state fearful that one spark would burn the entire county. However, the earlier than usual fires proved the county has learned from their mistakes of the 2007 fires that took 1,200 homes.

The effort paid off and the latest fires were thwarted using multiple agencies.
