If you think you're having a stroke, call 911.

Oh, ok. Phewww!

I'm at the north end of Santa Clarita so nothing more than smoke and ash so far.

Keeping our fingers crossed.

Thanks for thinking about us.

No problem. We all need to help each other out more.

We have people staying at one of our properties because they had to leave. Another has our RV. My wife uncle has been using my old uhaul truck to help some of his friends.

Good for you for helping them out. I hope everyone is OK.

Smoke hanging in Orange County from this fire. Downtown LA was bad. It looked like some of the old smog alert days from the 70s. Or like Beijing today.

We had dinner tonight at Stonefire Grill in Santa Clarita and after an hour the car was covered in ash.

Just smoke and ash where I'm at (Saugus).
I still haven't been able to find anything about how this started or about the body they found.
KrisDSA, good on you for helping out.

Link is to a Santa Clarita Valley Signal news interview about the fire from 07-25-16.

Very interesting.

My home is in the San Gabriel Valley area, actually very close to where the Fish Fire originated. I was working out of town in the mountains when the Sand Fire began. On Saturday the 23rd one of my staff told me that there was a fire coming our way. I stepped out of the office and noticed the smoke from the Sand Fire was moving easterly into the Big Bear Valley area. About an hour later we had brown sky and ash in the Angelus Oaks area.

My family was home and from all 3 locations in the San Gabriel Valley area they reported heavy ash fall.
