Tragically, cartoonist Brian Fies and his wife Karen lost their home in the recent Calistoga Fire. Brian shares their heartbreaking tale in his webcomic A Fire Story.

He writes:

My house burned down. I made a comic about it.

That seems to be how I handle trauma. It's kind of a feature and a bug.

This is quick, loose work...

I'd be pleased if you'd consider this as a journalistic dispatch from the front.

and...

My family, pets and I are all fine--a lot better off than many others. There's not a person in the county who hasn't been touched by this disaster. Karen and I know at least a hundred people burned out of their homes, including a lot of cops, firefighters, and government staff who've been working hard for others all week.
