    We are rolling up on the anniversary of the Cedar fire here...red flag warning in effect due to dry Santa Ana conditions, and high winds....and extended drought conditions.

    Here's a link to some photos from the Cedar fire...there were actually 3 fires that encircled San Diego county over the course of the weekend. The smoke was so thick it covered the sun. The ash traveled for miles, and was an inch thick on the ground.

    I just heard that! They are all over! I am surprised the sky is still blue!

    I am only a few minutes west of Ontario and haven't noticed it yet... where is it?

    Here are some pics from today. All of these were taken south of Lake Wohlford, just east of the Escondido City limits. I was on Recon.


    These houses in the Hidden Trails area of Escondido are threatened. These homes are in the patch of the pictures below:

    Me standing on a junk pile watching the fire approach Escondido. The goggles came in handy with winds gusting to 50 MPH. Lots of dirt and debris were being kicked up!

    The fire lines themselves are hard to see. They are being hidden by gobs of thick smoke.

    The fire is moving out of my area now. I will try and get some more shots for later....
