62. Many people never really recovered from the Cedar Fire 4 years ago, and
my friend Rob and his family lost their house in the Normal Heights fire on June 30, 1985, and Rob lost his brand new Jeep, and the family split up and was never really a family again after that. I don't think Rob has ever really recovered from it. Suddenly losing your house can send your whole life into a tailspin.
