Leslie Sommers, hero.

Watch this video in its entirety and you will see a familiar face. Leslie was driving in this afternoon when she saw a fire on the side of the road on East Mission Rd. spreading near the water tank. Rather than call 911 she called the Fallbrook Fire hotline directly. It took about seven minutes for trucks to arrive. But her car wouldn't start and she was trapped at the scene for over two and a half hours. Firefighters fought the blaze for about an hour. Couldn't get a tow truck in, so she was stuck and worried about her car catching fire at one point.

Very proud of my wife. If she had not been on top of things and vigilant there's no telling how out of hand the blaze might have become.

Great work by Leslie....but closing Ralph's (where no prices are lower prices) is just WRONG!

Thanks for saving our houses, Leslie! (and you looked cute on the news- but I couldn't hear the sound.)
