This is close to me but I'm not yet in the evacuation area. The sky is filled with smoke and the smoke smell is quite strong.

Didn't they say on FOX that it was started by a vehicle fire?

P.S. I remember the Santa Anas in San Diego on really hot days...the brush just becomes a natural tinderbox.

Someone post street names.

Has it traveled to Serrano (at Canon) yet?
Which side of Irvine Lake is it?
How close to Katella (Villa Park Road) is it?
Have they got the horses out?
Is Villa Park HS open for refugees?

Good map Torie. I moved from Mabury Ranch in November. Fortunately most of the homes in that neighborhood have tile or fireproof roofs.

I'm thankful that you're now a rainforest resident.

And praying for the safety of those in O.C.

I spotted the smoke this morning when I was at the top of the hill on Bastenchury Road in Fullerton. My first thought was to deny it was a fire because it's much to early in the year. By my calculations we should still be in flood season. Fire season is still half a year away. You know the old saying that the four seasons in California are fire, flood, drought, and quake.

This is a strange place for a fire. It's right smack in the center of the county. Really in the middle of it all. Usually brush fires are located more toward the edge of development.
