The fires here in Cali are out of control, one is pretty close to where I work, but still a few miles away and shouldn't reach us (famous last words, right?). A friend has a shop at the North end of Lake Elsinore, and when I was up that way Wednesday evening, residents said, "oh, we're safe, they won't evacuate us because the fire will go past us." The next day they had mandatory evacuations. Last night I went to check on my friend's shop to see if there was a threat for it to burn down. I went past the lines, further than I should have and was able to walk up the hill and check on his shop. The fires burned the hill behind the shop but looked to be done and all the structures on that street were saved. Here are a few pics from my visit last night.
