I just saw it on tv! my goodness it was a lot of damage by the looks of things!
in australia we have special helicopters that dump water.. does california have anything like that? I think more countries need to be educated about fire danger - australia is really prone to fires so I think we're really lucky in that when we do have bushfires, there is a lot more information on tv and in schools about how to deal with them and how to stay safe.
I hope all those muters in the area stay safe! huggles!
i'm about 30 minutes away from the ontario and san bernardino fires, san diego is also getting fires up in poway which is also residential, a few years back when we had all those fires we got all the smoke and TONS of ashes for like 3 days!! you'd go outside and everybody's cars and street would be completly covered in ash!! if the winds continue, we'll probably get all the ash again. which is NOTHING compared to all those poor peoples homes catching on fire.

Yesterday, we didn't even have a real dusk. The sky was just black with smoke. Even though it was hot out, we were forced to close our windows. All of our NE window sills are coated in ash and soot.
Parts of my city are being evacuated so I'm keeping a close eye on this...
