CNN says 300,000 evacuees so far...hopefully no piggies have had their homes threatened yet?
That figure is correct, 1,000 homes lost, but ours not among them. We've taken in two evacuees (they won't know about their home for a day or two at least). Our plant facility is closed because it's in the evacuation area on I-15, but we have our own power generating capability, so our inventory will be safe and that area burned in the Cedar Fire of 2003 so the fuel is minimal (you can still see evidence around the Miramar Airfield even today).
This is EASILY the worst fire in San Diego history...it makes the Cedar Fire of 2003 look like a marshmallow roast by comparison. We are much better prepared, but the winds in this one are so much worse there is nothing to do by way of fighting it.
Containment is effectively zero. There is now discussion of evacuating Camp Pendleton Marine Base.
