First I heard of it, I should check the local news occasionally.
Drought in Southern CA all the way up to San Francisco plus record-high temperatures make the CA fire outlook very worrying this year.
Are the Chinese monkeying with the weather? Because this winter was ridiculously unusual all over the USA.
My Daughter can see it, they are waiting to see if they will have to leave. We are worried!
Where is she near? I too am worried about a friend!
The evacuation area is south and west of the Rancho Bernardo Area. The RB high school is one of the evacuation centers. Torrey Pines high school was an evacuation center, but it has now been closed because there is too much smoke there.
Hope this helps.

Thanks! She just texted, ok so far. Carmel Valley.
I drove by the area (Mira Mesa) on I-5 twice this afternoon and it’s already taken out over 700 acres of brush. The wind is the primary problem with this fire.
It’s Crazy, they just sold their house, and were able to rent it back from the new owner until they leave May 27! Hope this misses them. My Daughter said well we won’t have to pack much if it comes here.
I am so sorry!
I hope everything works out! What a mess!
Crazy weather for SD, it should have rained crazy this winter!
A bunch of my co-workers got reverse 911 and headed out the door to evacuate their homes. One has a horse to rescue too.
Ranhco Santa Fe and Del Mar? Man, that’s high dollar real estate.
Odd weather in SoCal. Three Santa Anna type events recently.
I’ve been here since 1996 and don’t recall Santa Ana’s this time of year. They usually occur in the fall
Is this fire anywhere near Cardiff-by-the-Sea? I have relatives in that community.
There’s no fire near Mira Mesa....
My mistake, I was driving back from Mira Mesa when I first noticed the fire in Rancho Bernardo. At least that’s where I think the first one was. I could see it from I-5 very easily while I was driving North between the Del Mar Heights exit and Lomas Santa Fe Drive exits.
