From an A1 Washington Post story on the heroism of California's firefighters.
"I heard from neighbors my place was okay," said Shel Greenhill, who pulled up in a BMW station wagon with a large poodle in the back. "But I'm worried about my koi pond." (To be sure, the story contained the less-hilarious quote from another evacuee: "I had two days to think about: What are the most important things in my house? And they all fit in my car. I realize now how much junk I have.") [Washington Post]
