Oak Glen Fire Blazing Close to Home
Sunday, August 30, 2009

Once again, I regret not having a better camera.  This was the best image I could get, but I can see the flames burning high and bright from my bedroom window in Yucaipa.  The whole ridge is ablaze... pale smoke fills the air, illuminated by orange firelight.  Haven't yet located the best news site, but here are a couple links:

As of 10:00 PM PDT, there was zero percent containment.  The town of Oak Glen, which is about 7 miles from me, has been evacuated.  The fire is between us and Oak Glen.
