As The Smoke Clears
Both the destruction and close calls are becoming more photogenic as the smoke clears and travel restrictions are lifted. Driving around town it becomes clear that harsh lines had to be drawn when choosing where to fight and where to give ground. Five new photographs here were taken this afternoon and are all from within one mile of Casa.
Police presence in this part of Escondido is sharply reduced from this morning, but a lone National Guardsman was stationed at the site of one burned out house, and firetrucks lone and in convoys were on the move on every street.
