Woodmen Valley resident Wendy Geisler looks at a strobe light on top of her car Thursday, July 18, 2013. She and other neighbors have six kits of strobe lights, fire extinguishers and air horns they share to patrol at night for fire. The patrols are part of an organized effort to protect the neighborhood in response to a small fire that erupted one night during the Black Forest fire. Photo by Mark Reis, The Gazette
