    Your coverage has been fantastic. However, it would be very valuable to those in the area of the fires if the location of the fires could be shown on a map of some sort. Also, on air reporting would be more valuable if each time a fire was being shown a map could be included, or at least direct viewers to your site where they can see the location of the fire shown on a map.

    Time to move out of the hills and back into the city.
    Is privacy and a view really worth losing your house?
