I just want to say one more thing about our brave firefighters. The majority of them work for small town fire companies and DO NOT get paid extra for fighting wildfires! Replacements are brought in from up north to cover their jobs while they tromp off into the hills and canyons, carrying hoses, shovels and axes, to fight these fires under extreme conditions. Carrying ‘Survivor Tents’ in case they are over run with flames, which 6 of them were. They were trying to keep the flames from jumping a highway! They are fine. When I see some of them interviewed I can tell how dedicated they are and how much they love their jobs! They are truly our ‘Guardian Angels’!!
I just heard that the police found some sleezeball trying to start another fire and shot him DEAD!!! GOOD!!!!!
They are trying to do water drops tonight over Lake Arrowhead and the San Diego fires but it’s a very risky proposition. At night and lots of smoke. The only good thing is that it is a pretty full moon tonight. It’s so sad to see the reporters doing reports on their own burned down homes. Sadly, a few of these fires are starting to rage yet again!! 1800 homes destroyed at last count. Watching Larry King interview some firefighters and they can barely talk!! They are just so exhausted!
Updating my Space with this fire thing has been exhausting but I wanted you all to know what was going on here!! I visited alot of you tonight and commented and I will continue tomorrow.
1 Million people have been evacuated now!
Holy Crap!! Looking at the San Diego fire!! WAY out of control, and the injured firefighter count is up to 35!
Take care MY friends!!!
