Fire Update #2

When the second fire on the mountain started about 8am this morning, we started packing up the car. We were getting inundated with smoke and the roads were closing all over. We voluntarily evacuated about 10am. We are now safely off the mountain staying with my parents for a while. We just saw reports and video of homes burning in Lake Arrowhead. Traffic was bad when we left, I can't imagine what it's like now. Praying that everyone stays safe.
