Firefighting crews battle wildfire that threatens Reagan ranch in California

(Reuters) - California firefighters are taking advantage of a break in strong winds on Wednesday afternoon to get aircraft aloft and dump retardant on a fast-moving wildfire that is within a half mile of former President Ronald Reagan's ranch, officials said.

A crew of roughly 1,500 firefighters have so far successfully steered the Alisal fire away from the Reagan ranch, where the former U.S. leader hosted the likes of Queen Elizabeth and former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, said Andrew Madsen, a spokesman for Los Padres National Forest, where the blaze is centered.

"There are forecasts of high winds tonight, and we're trying to get as much as we can done before then," Madsen said.

The crews are also working to keep the fire away from a shuttered Exxon Mobil facility in Las Flores canyon, he added. The company didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

1. I wonder if Ron and Patti still own it?

I hope they donít lose it or if they live there, their lives. Both are pretty swell.

2. Let it burn. It would like an exorcism.

It is closed to the public and owned by a conservative group who keep it as a tribute to Reagan's ideas.

3. "Government Is The Problem"

Except when it comes to saving Reagan's Ranch.

My feelings - "Burn, baby, burn!"
