Anthony Duffy gets a dog out of his truck for water outside his Two Tails Training and Boarding business on Lure Lane. The Red Apple Fire was burning just up the road from them. "Thank God it wasn't on the weekend," Duffy said. "We would normally have 30 dogs." He only had to move seven that were in his kennels into the truck to be ready to evacuate.
