As a Northern California (Sacramento) resident, my first thought on reading the story here was "Ummm...there is no way that San Francisco has faced 600 wildfires - perhaps the 'greater San Fransicso Bay Area', but even that would take a pretty generous definition. Then I clicked through to the actual NY Times article, which reads:
SAN FRANCISCO — Facing down 600 wildfires in the past three days alone, emergency workers rushed to evacuate tens of thousands of people in Southern California on Thursday..." (italics mine).
So...'San Fransicso' is part of the dateline, and the sentence that was mis-quoted refers to fires in Southern California.
The story itself is an interesting read, but Neatorama needs to do a much better job of actually reading the content of news stories before reposting them.

Is there any record of what he said? Because you just know that first call had to start with "Hey...guess where I'm calling from?"
