Welcome to DC, Wayne. Hope you are safe where you are.

As our Governor mentioned, kudos to the firefighters, the action/response taken here & the properties etc. that have been saved and out of harms way. The short run is what is most important now - putting the fire out. From wherever help was brought in, the "plan" is an excellent one. The news also mentioned this could have burned from the Valley to the Ocean. Depending on a few factors, we're hoping it won't jump the 101. Let's cross our fingers and hope for the best.

Ash and smoke is hazardous. If you can, try to close your windows & don't go outside unless it's necessary. Take care of your pets.

Just a side note - in all the years I've lived here and all the fires that occur here, this one concerns me for a few reasons -- it's very close to residential areas & widespread. Almost from day one ?, you can see the smoke on a satellite view. By Monday, I think/hope it will be contained and close to an end.
