I used to have this foot-tall wizard candle. A few years ago when it got this hot, I arrived home to see that it had melted in half, as if the wizard was magically and painfully bent 180 degrees to the side – hat touching the ground right next to his feet. Very sad. *sniff*

A bird ignited two of those fires Monday in Livermore by hitting power lines and catching fire, starting blazes that burned more than 70 acres of grassland.
