Bochy keeping watchful eye on wildfires

SAN FRANCISCO -- Manager Bruce Bochy has reason to be concerned about the wildfires ravaging the San Diego area.

Bochy lives in the San Diego suburb of Poway, which could be out of danger, as news reports said that the fire was 75 percent contained as of Thursday afternoon.

Nevertheless, Bochy said that one of his neighbors has volunteered to tend to his house if the flames spread dangerously close.

Third-base coach Tim Flannery, who also lives in the San Diego area, said that his home is safe.
