OUT OF THE ASHES.

The voracious firestorms that scorched the Southland last week struck with violent randomness -- making hopscotch moves through neighborhoods, sending some homes up in flames while sparing others just feet away.

They marched across everything from middle-class Canyon Country communities to the tony enclave of Malibu, leaving dozens of homes destroyed in their wake.

The stories of those who have been touched by the devastation all hold similar themes: Hard work. Dreams. Family. Friends. Aspirations.

And as they seek to rebuild, they echo a common refrain: "We will survive."
