Because the Blaine Fire burned near populated neighborhoods in Riverside and Moreno Valley, the fire retardant that aircraft have been using to fight the fire has been sprayed on a number of local homes, yards, and cars. The Press-Enterprise this morning reported that Cal Fire is actually willing to return to the retardant-covered neighborhoods and use fire hoses to help spray it off of houses. KVCR's Ken Vincent has more.
