Leeann Agee is one of many residents in the Pollock Pines area of El Dorado County still grateful to this day that the disastrous Caldor Fire did not devour their town. "It’s really a miracle," Agee said. "Hallelujah," she told KCRA 3 while stopping for gas at the Pollock Pines Mobil station. "Thank the firefighters and the U.S. Forest Service. We love them." The Caldor Fire, which started mid-August and took more than three months to fully contain the spread of the flames, burned 221,835 and destroyed over 1,000 structures.
