An ember from a campfire starts a small wildfire in a rural area of Southern California. The local fire department quickly responds and attempts to contain the fire using fire lines and a nearby creek. Unfortunately, the heavy rains during the previous winter followed by an unusually dry summer have left large areas of dry grass and timber that quickly spread the fire. Within hours, two small hospitals are in danger of being evacuated. And then you get the 911 reverse calls telling you that you have 20 minutes to evacuate your facility.
