The local newspaper has a map of the fire up. According to that, it's somewhere around 2000 feet from his house at this point. I've been curious about what a house looks like after it has been protected (slurry bombed and trees cut back). I may get to find out.
His house was abandoned and then foreclosed upon so there was a lot of overgrowth, but he's been pretty aggressive cutting back everything for fire mitigation. It may pay off.

Look again at that dot. That's here, that's home, that's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there – on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.
