    Re: Malibu Fire

    Are you talking about the 10-15 guys in a white pick up truck in Running Springs? I heard about that. I swore. My co-workers town is being evacuated.

    I love this:
    4:08PM PER 101D2- LIVE OAK AT GLEN OAK, 2 TREES BEHIND A HOUSE ON FIRE, HOUSE ABOUT TO IGNITE

    I think I know where that is...

    I am going to post this in the gold forums but if you anyone sees a yellow siding house kinda' up on a hill with a GIANT window in the front (it's literally 20 feet long by 10 feet tall). Hear the street "Spring Oak" CALL ME! That's me!

    They're saying this is bigger than Katrina.

Highlands is in voluntary evac. The castle is on fire.

    I'm hearing the same as you . . . seems like it's worse in your area than in my Twin Peaks now.

    Oh and I am kinda' under the firm impression: the arsons in Irvine- how about a public lynching? Hanging on national t.v.? My brother mentioned the stockades (you know in Robin Hood where the people couldn't pay their taxes were, those) and everyone who has lost their house to smack those guys. I mean really it's a red flag warning and they're starting fire! Maybe it's my lack of sleep, maybe it's... I don't know. Just ranting.
    And you might as well add in the truck load of Bozos that are cruising the areas looting the empty homes!!! What the :!$#%: is wrong with these :!$#%: slimeballs. I'm livid when i read on the scanner that they out run authorities and get away with it. :verymad:

    Oh! I can send via my phone (ie if you give me your phone number because it's basically texting with a picture) a picture from my house yesterday. People who see it text back with "oh f---!"

    One out of 6 people are leaving their homes in San Diego.

    OH MY GOD if those were started by arsons.... They're.... I lack the words. The people, the critters, the.... everything that is being displaced right now the lives... I can't even...I am one of those people that believe everything has a soul (toys, rocks, trees, etc) and this is just one of those things that... How can someone be that cruel?

    I heard Prin- you might want to know they're saying the Santiago fire might head to Cleveland National. As a Corona resident...

    I am thinking of taking up drinking. But my stomach is knotted...

    I'm in. My house isn't in danger, but just thinking about someone intentionally starting a fire gets my blood boiling and life in prison isn't good (bad?) enough.

    KK, I heard rumors that the Arrow/Bear fires may have also been arson.

    Oh and KNBC can't spell and I want to smack the hell out of the Running Springs reporter who keeps saying "Running Springs is a vacation community." Jill got a huge rant on what an idiot that guy is. Why? Everyone on my street lives there full time. And another rant? My neighbor has her whole driveway full of crap. She lives across the street and her whole driveway was filled with crap. Kindling....

Email me or post something on my myspace if you see that house. I am tempted to put my phone number out here just in case someone sees something. I am just posting that here... because there's a giant lack of information.
    -Friedalba area is burning. That's... south/across the street from the 330 from us. At the passing lane there's 2 streets. Friedabla is on the right (if you are coming up the hill) on the left is Live Oak. I live off Live Oak. Easy street was the short cut across the street from the little market I used to walk to... so I am kinda'... ick. But I guess right now we're looking safe.
    -talked to my boss. She wanted to know if I was okay. She said at 6:15 a family dropped off their kids, but she started packing files by 7:30, which is when she started turning people away. The family picked up. Right now Crestline is in danger which is where my co-worker lives. Boss is in Southern Arrowhead near the hospital. She said as soon as everything is okay then we're back to work.
    -5% contained! If I could curse here it'd start with F and end with yeah!

    It was funny because yesterday I got calls from close friends, close family, my friend that I made the trip report with, Jill, we're texting every hour. Then today friends from high school are calling me, getting my phone number from other people because they know...my parents had this house in high school. It was the snow cabin. So they're now checking up on me and saying "if you need anything... "

    Oh and side note: I found a bra! In my car!

    Will post more later. I have a massive headache.
    My thoughts are prayers are with you and your family. I hope you get some good news soon.

The Big Planes are slated to go to Arrowhead area first, when they finally get here!!
    Love that coffee shop!

    I thought I would share a few pics from the last 48 hours or so from Santa Clarita, the firefighters have done a fantastic job with the fires up there.

    Sunday afternoon after arriving home from the CHOC walk, we attended a birthday party for a neighbor on our street. Around 2:30 the smoke from the Aqua Dulce fire began creeping over the hills


    Then around 4pm a neighbor came to notify us the fire had crested the water tower at the top of the hill (north of plum canyon, east of Rogers / Santa Caterina). This was taken from the end of my street looking north east



    At that point the police were heading up to evacuate the neighborhood to the east of us, so I grabbed my kids and went home to pack.

    Within less than 5 minutes the police were on my street telling us we were under mandatory evacuation and to leave immediately.



    This area only has on main road in and out (Plum to the west and Whites to the east, so we knew it would back up quickly.

    We headed east on Plum (which turns into Whites) this was when the fire jumped Whites Cyn, we had to turn back and go the other direction.




    From the top of Golden Valley (near GV High) around 5:15pm, this is looking back towards Whites Canyon


    These were taken from the AM/PM on Sierra Hwy / Friendly Valley around 5:30pm. This hill is east of Whites Canyon I believe behind Canyon Crest.




    We stayed at my MILs, and returned home around 9:30am Monday morning.

    Within about 30 minutes from returning home, the hill (NE) behind Plum Canyon / Bouquet Cyn caught fire again


    They had fixed wing and helicopters dropping on this area immediately after it flared up there are hundreds of homes in the immediate area.


    My thoughts and prayers are with everyone and their families. Its been a long couple of days, hopefully the winds will calm down and we can get some relief. I know our fire fighters are tired, God Bless them for heir hard work.
    Thats crazy, i remember 4 years ago there was a fire just up the street from my house on Benz and bouquet Canyon. Be safe!
