This was taken from our driveway. We're dealing with the nation's #1 priority fire right now. Many areas are already evacuated, with many more on the pre-evacuation list. We're hoping it doesn't get any closer, but right now it's out of control, and heading in too many directions at once.

Since posting this yesterday the fire has grown even more and so far about 2000 homes have been evacuated, some of which are in a subdivision about half a mile from us. At 3 am this morning we could see flames from our house.

    I'm sorry Susan, I hope that the fire did not arrive near your house.
    I'm a fireman in Italy and I know how difficult it is to tame a fire so big.
    My prayers are for you.
