From what i hear the entire town of Paradise CA has been wiped out. 27,000 residents fleeing.Some cars abandoned with parents carrying kids--running from flames.
Hope the wind shift toward the coast continues.

It does look scary, do stay safe Tom!
I visited Fremont as a teen, family friends lived there so I imagine it’s happening in the mountains?

It’s a beautiful part of the country with one of the best central parks I’ve visited, the hills/mountains(?) look a lot closer than they are. Hope the fire dies down.

Not yet jack.
But it was incredibly windy that night/early morning when the blaze started. So it could have started accidentally--BUT---firestarters know the best conditions to start a fire

"At least" five dead so looking pretty bad though it says the fire first broke out n/west of central LA where a guy shot 12 people dead on Wednesday.
