'Why wouldn't they have the resources here?'

Fady Najjar, 16, was watering down palm trees in front of his Santiago Canyon Estates house and watching planes drop pink fire retardant on the flaming hillside.

"This morning they said the fires were all over, and 20 minutes later the hill was on fire," Fady said.

Najjar's cousin, Rob Zahr, 36, came out of the house and told him, "Get ready it's getting time to go."

Zahr added, "When they say they don't have enough resources, it doesn't make you feel warm and fuzzy, it doesn't make you feel safe. Why wouldn't they have the resources here?"
