Just wondering if anyone has heard of how Rich is doing. I'm assuming he's wrapped up in the Cali fires.

I've seen him lurking on the board a little.

I am sure that he is doing his part. California looks like hell on earth at the moment.

Let's all give a big cheer to those brave men and women that are battling to control these blazes.

And a big prayer to keep everybody safe.

There are an awful lot of scared, possibly homeless folks that could use some good vibes right now.

This map gives you more of an idea how bad these fires are.

I have family waiting to be evacuated from Carlsbad. They are packed and ready but the evacuation is going street by street because of the congestion on the roadways.

Just when we thought the fire season was coming to an end.... frown

Didn't realize there was already a thread started on this, so moved mine here.

Talked to my parents this morning & sounds like San Diego and surrounding area is not doing well. Schools are all closed and being used to house evacuees. My sister and her family were evacuated & are staying w/ my parents. At least 16 firefighters and 25 others were reported injured since the blazes began Sunday, and one person was killed.

Reaper & others, our prayers are with you!

I can never remember which is better . . . safe? . . . or sorry?

hi guys! thanks for the thoughts and prayers.
It's hell here in SoCal at the moment.
i was oredered in to the FD early Monday morning. I watched many homes in the Rancho Bernardo/N.San Diego County burn to the ground on my way to my firehouse in Ontario. What a helpless feeling. I had to double back and go about 80 miles out of my way because the fire roared across the I-15 freeway at about 5AM.
I was at a 100 acre fire in our city all day yesterday. We are all oredered in to stay, but no one wants to go home and watch on TV anyway. We have guys in Malibu and Lake Arrowhead.
The fire in lake Arrowhead is growing rapidly. One of our guys lost his house this morning. The San Diego fires are raging out of control. The last report was over 1,000 homes destroyed in SD County.
I am on an engine company today, back to the ladder truck tomorrow and then who knows where? i won't be home for a week or so.
kristine and the kids are OK. Our house is in a very protected area. Our friends have been eveacuated and are at our house. He is an LA City fireman, so that's good to have him there, so we have 3 adults and 4 kids jammed in. the kids are having fun, no school all week.
I'll keep you guys posted, but we are running a LOT of calls covering for the units that are gone.
I'll post an update later.
