As flames rush down hill toward her house, a woman screams for her remaining family members to evacuate during the School Canyon Fire in Ventura, Calif., on November 18th, 2005. The fire, which started on School Canyon Road at 3:00 am, quickly spread by daylight hours, and threatened neighborhoods by 6:30 am.
