Burn scar area of Alpine prepares for rain

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Many people who live near Highland Street in Alpine have placed sandbag even barriers to protect their homes.

This is a community that was left with a huge burn scar from the West Fire six months ago.

It’s that burn scar that firefighters and other emergency respondents are concerned about this week with all the rain San Diego county is getting.

They say flooding and erosion can happen in places that are not covered by landscaping, grass, trees and shrubs.

Community members are cautiously optimistic about the current conditions.

Maddie Yeager said “We’re not too affected but we do have people that could be affected so it can definitely be an issue… but it’s not that much raining it’s not down pouring.
so…fingers crossed.”

Michelle Brown tells us she too has taking a few safety measures at her home, “I do have sandbags at my house but nothing too drastic..you know we don’t have a lot of erosion so we don’t really have that problem.”

San Diego county and Cal Fire advises you to do what you can to protect your home and property. They are making free sandbags available at several locations throughout the county.
