The towns are smaller but close together. It's a lot of vineyards and orchards as well. Still, there are homes going up. Veteran firefighters with thirty hears experience say they've never seen a fire move like that one. They tried to make a stand at Highway 20 but the fire jumped over the road and who knows where it's going to stop. If I was north of that fire in a canyon I would be packing anything that mattered to me.
Very sad to read about such loss of peoples' homes .
I do hope your immediate neighbourhood continues to be unaffected and safe.
