Firefighters Work To Protect Homes From Wildfire In Geyserville 

Residents have been ordered to leave and firefighters are working to protect homes from the Pocket Fire in Geyserville, Vazquez reports.

Veteran reporter Vasquez has traveled far and wide in search of good stories. 

In a local TV news career that spans more than two decades, Vasquez has hustled after hurricanes and tropical storms in Houston and New Orleans; covered politics and police in Philadelphia; and while in the Bay Area, has covered all the major stories; from the San Bruno explosion, to the “most dangerous street in Oakland” to a faked finger discovery in a bowl of chili in San Jose.
