Todos Santos Huerta Fire - Shortly after noon, yesterday, Thursday, Feb. 28, a large fire broke out in the Las Quintas ~ Los Flores area northeast of Todos Santos. Apparently started by sparks from a vehicle, winds quickly fanned the flames into the nearby palms, and electricity was cut to Todos Santos. The highway north to La Paz the and the Los Flores road were both closed for a while as firemen from Todos Santos and La Paz worked to put out the flames and limit damage. Some damage was reported, as were injuries to the firefighters who put out the blaze. Some palapa roofs in downtown Todos Santos caught fire from burning embers as they were carried into town by the high winds.

If you have photos of the fire, please send them to the Baja Western Onion, moderator [- at -] bajawesternonion.com, and we'll share them with your fellow readers as space allows. - The Baja Western Onion

2 Dogs Need A Home - The casita I rented came with 2 dogs. The first day they were a little skittish but over the past few days have adjusted well. They greet me when I come back from town and they bark if someone approaches the casita. The male looks like a Sheppard cross and I think still growing. He had a collar on which I had to cut off since it was too tight. The female is a very sweet dog and still young. It would be best if someone could take both since they are such good buddies. The reality is I cannot take them with me otherwise I would. They are both fantastic dogs and deserve a home. Please email me if you would like to see some photos of these adorable dogs. - Gus, gus_dej [- at -] hotmail.com, 556084-3442
