At least 1,000 homes evacuated as others burn in fast-moving Orange County brush fire

We don't live super-close to this, but our skies are still affected, as you can see.  Plenty of falling ash...

Yes, please do.
No one can resist the truth wrapped in a good joke.

yes i heard it was really a bad fire, and there have been a lot of big fires in Canada too. Last year a whole city of Fort McMurray was wiped out by fire.
This year it was the fires of BC, I saw smoke all over, and it bothered my allergies making me sneeze.

I don't know what we can do about all these fires. Then there were a lot of high wind storms this year too, I haven't seen that before that I recall. June 20th I got caught in a hurricane.

Yeah, I saw there were fires up north (central CA), too (pinned thread).  This is actually an enitrely different fire in Southern California 'we're' having.  I haven't had a chance to investgate the damage or spread of the central California fires yet, but my brief glance impression is that it is larger or more signficant in deaths and damages so far ('state of emergency' level)...

My neices don't have to go school tomorrow (sister's family closer to 'the action'), so they're happy Chuckle  Hopefully the firefighfers will have some containment made overnight.  Let's hope it's not arson!  

Thanks for the well-wishes, folks Heartflowers  I'm a little concerned about wildlife, but of course we want to keep homes and people/pet safety at a premium, too (down here and further up north).

I heard somewhere it wasn't accidental. See you guys are getting some EQ activity too. Be careful!
