Southerna CA

Calimesa....

Hot ashes etc in a Commercial Dump Truck caught the contents on fire so Driver dumped the load into a field which ignited the dry grass and the 50 mh winds blew it into a mobile home park destroying 76 homes at last count....1 dead and 2 missing.
So far 800+ acres have burned.
("But BOSS...I saved the truck!")

5000+ acres burned...100K forced evacuations in LA County
High winds fueling the fires




Northern CA
Guess PG&E was forward thinking by cutting power BEFORE winds whipped transmission lines/towers and caused fires.

I went to the big RV show in Fontana today. Nothing better than an ORV trailer there.

It's a mess traffic here due to all the freeway closed going north. When you get 50mph wind and a fire in mobile estate neighborhood it can't be stopped. It's all ashes now. It's really a mess.

Right now every freeway out of LA going north is stopped or closed. Check out Sigalert for here, never seen it this bad.
