    I'm sure many of you have been watching the news and have seen the horrible fires in LA County, Ventura County and San Bernardino right now.

    (Info from California State Wide Fire Map)

    Rye Fire

    off Rye Canyon Loop, west of Valencia (Los Angeles County) is now 7,000 acres and 5% contained.

    Thomas Fire

    Hwy 150 and Hwy 126, north of Santa Paula (Ventura County) is now 65,000 acres.

    Creek Fire

    Off Kagel Canyon Rd., north of Lake View Terrace (Los Angeles County) per Los Angeles County Fire is now 11,377 acres.

    Skirball Fire

    CAL FIRE is assisting Los Angeles City Fire with a 50 acre fire off N. Sepulveda Blvd, at I-405 (Los Angeles County). 405 closed in both directions.

    Little Mountain Fire

    University Pkwy and Hwy 215, west of Arrowhead (San Bernardino County) is now 100 acres

    Here is a picture from my backyard:

    These fires are burning out of control currently with very little containment, winds have died down today so there is hope that some of these fires will become contained before they start up again. Many people are loosing their homes very close to the Holidays. I live pretty close to the Skirball Fire, but luckily we live outside the Canyon and in the basin so no fire threat. Air quality is very poor from all the smoke passing over due to all these fires, try and stay inside if possible. To anyone who is currently stuck on the 405 closure, I hope they get you all out of there ASAP!!

    To all the DPF members in these areas, I hope you and your families are safe! Please check in if you can!! Wishing everyone the best through these difficult times!

    So many fires this year! It's like the year of natural disaster, makes you think about the possibility of an earthquake -___-

    Prayers going out to everyone! The last fires were terrifying, I don't think I'll ever get used to seeing so much smoke.

    So horrible. After hearing about the fires, I’ve just been anxious for them to be contained for the sake of everyone involved. Stay safe and hoping the best <3

    I flew out of town on Tuesday from Burbank; we flew through the smoke of at least one of the fires. I felt awful for the woman seated next to me on the plane; she was from Santa Rosa (her house survived the fires, thankfully) and was down in Ventura County for work right when all these fires started popping up. She was so stressed out and kept looking through the windows.

    My roommate was home. None of the fires ever got close enough to make her evacuate but she got the cat carriers out just in case she had to grab the cats and leave in a hurry.

    Glad to hear everything was okay for you. The pilot pointed out the fires during our flight out tonight. Hope they are contained soon!
