Bill told Jimi to look up at the ridge, near the park. Bill thought he saw flames. Jimi went outside with his binoculars. He could see a suspicious glow. Using the binoculars, he could see flames. "God damn it!" he yelled.

He called Bill back. Then he and Bill started calling one neighbor after another, as they had established a fire warning and evacuation plan years ago. The whole community of 98 homeowners managed to get into their cars with their families and pets and just a few of their material possessions. They all survived the raging fire.

Unfortunately, 48 homes were destroyed and 27 were damaged. The fire engines were just not close enough to the community to get there before the Santa Ana winds, gusting up to 60 mph, ripped through the canyon. The next day, firefighters declared that the fire was a result of "human activity," although they hadn't determined if the fire was deliberate or accidental.

Homeowners were allowed to return to their home sites to assess damages. Most homeowners were philosophical about their losses. "We've got our families and our friends. That's far more important than our homes and other possessions," said Eve Grant.

But Jimi Hendrix was less even-tempered. "Common sense would tell anybody that you don't set fires in a wooded area when the wind is blowing like crazy. Any idiot would know that. As far as I'm concerned, these bastards ought to be burned at the stake. And I'd grab me a front-row seat."

48 ngôi nhà cháy rụi gần Malibu (2)

Bill bảo Jimi nhìn về đụn rơm, gần công viên. Bill nghĩ rằng ánh thấy ngọn lửa. Jimi ra ngoài với ống nhòm. Ông thấy một ánh sáng đáng ngờ. Dùng ống nhòm, ông thấy lửa. "Trời nguyền rủa nó!" ông hét lên.

Ông gọi lại cho Bill. Và ông cùng Bill bắt đầu gọi từng nhà hàng xóm như họ đã đặt hệ thống báo cháy và kế hoạch di tản nhiều năm trước. Cả cộng đồng gồm người trong 98 ngôi nhà đã thu xếp vào được xe với gia đình của họ và thú cưng chỉ với vài vật dụng. Họ đều sống sót trước trận hoả hoạn.

Không may, 48 ngôi nhà bị phá huỷ và 27 bị hư hỏng. Những người lính cứu hoả không ở đủ gần bên cộng đồng để có mặt trước cơn gió Santa Ana, tốc độ 60 dặm một giờ, càn quét qua hẻm núi. Ngày hôm sau, lính cứu hoả tuyên bố là trận hoả hoạn do "hoạt động của con người," mặc dù họ không xác định ngọn lửa vô tình hay cố ý.

Những gia chủ được cho phép quay về nhà để đánh giá hư hỏng. Hầu hết gia chủ triết lý về những mất mát của họ. "Chúng tôi còn gia đình và bạn bè. Điều đó quan trọng hơn rất nhiều so với ngôi nhà và vật dụng," Eve Grant nói.

Nhưng Jimi Hendrix tính khí ít cân bằng hơn. "Theo lẽ thường có thể nói với bất cứ ai rằng bạn không đặt lửa nơi có gỗ khi gió thổi như điên. Bất kỳ gã khờ nào cũng biết vậy. Điều tôi quan tâm, những tên giả tạo đó sẽ phải bị thiêu. Và tôi muốn ngồi hàng ghế đầu để xem."

Bill bảo Jimi hãy nhìn lên sườn núi, gần công viên. Bill nghĩ mình trông thấy ngọn lửa. Jimi bước ra ngoài với cặp ống dòm. Ông có thể thấy ánh sáng rực rỡ một cách đáng ngờ. Dùng cặp ống dòm, ông có thể trông thấy được ngọn lửa. "Đồ Trời đánh Thánh vật" ông la lên.

Ông gọi trở lại cho Bill. Rồi ông và Bill gọi cho láng giềng hết người này đến người khác, y như họ đã thiết lập kế hoạch cảnh báo cháy và di tản những năm trước đây. Toàn bộ khu vực gồm 98 chủ nhà cố bước lên xe cùng với gia đình và thú cưng và chỉ với một ít trong các tài sản quan trọng của mình. Tất cả mọi người vẫn còn sống trong ngọn lửa dữ dội.

Thật không may, 48 ngôi nhà bị phá huỷ và 27 ngôi nhà bị hư hỏng. Xe chữa cháy không tiếp cận được với khu dân cư trước các đợt gió Santa Ana, đang thổi giật từng cơn với tốc độ 60 dặm/một giờ, lan rộng khắp hẻm núi. Ngày hôm sau, những người lính cứu hoả tuyên bố trận hoả hoạn là kết quả của "hoạt động của con người," cho dù họ không xác định được trận hoả hoạn là do vô tình hay cố ý.

Chủ nhà được phép trở về nhà mình để đánh giá mức độ thiệt hại. Hầu hết mọi người đều bình tĩnh về những tổn thất của gia đình. "Chúng tôi đã giữ được gia đình và bạn bè. Điều đó còn quan trọng hơn rất nhiều so với căn nhà và các tài sản khác," Eve Grant nói.

Nhưng Jimi Hendrix là người không được điềm đạm như thế. "Kinh nghiệm sẽ mách bảo bất cứ ai là không nên đốt lửa trong khu vực có nhiều cây cối khi gió đang thổi như điên. Bất cứ thằng ngốc nào cũng biết điều đó mà. Theo tôi, những kẻ đáng ghét đó phải bị thiêu sống trên cọc. Và tôi sẽ chọn cho mình một dãy ghế ở hàng đầu.
