Bill lived next door in Concow

I lived next door to Bill in Concow until that fateful day of November 8, 2018. I had a friend living nearby closer to the fire who warned me the Fire was in the Canyon and we'd need to evacuate. I immediately Called over to Bills House while my wife called the other neighbor. Warned them of the fire and get ready to evacuate. Just a few minutes later the power went out, which means no phone service for us as we lived in a dead zone for cell phones which worked off the wireless networks. About 15 to 20 minutes or so all hell broke loose and the Fire was 100 yards or so away. My wife and I and our dog barely made it out. Bill was having some trouble moving very fast due to his leg getting cut a while back but he was still managing to get around. Don't know why Bill didn't get out along with the rest of the family. He wanted to leave Concow as he wasn't happy living there any longer, thought of moving to Chico with Karen leaving Brandi, Art and their Cats behind.
