Massive wildfires burned out of control in Napa and Sonoma counties early Monday, destroying hundreds of number of homes and businesses, forcing the evacuation of thousands of people and shutting down major roadways as firefighters sought to halt the advance of infernos that were driven by powerful winds.
There was no immediate estimate of the damage or the extent of injuries, but vast swaths of land were burning in both counties, according to authorities and witnesses.

It's reached Tustin.

The sky is filled with ashes, and the sun is red.

Only one of my friends in that area evacuated. She has little kids, so she really didn't want them breathing the air.
Their house is OK for now (according to a neighbor). They originally thought the fire might jump their road, and then it would have been a big problem. But it's stayed on the other side of the road for now.

Hope everyone stays safe.

Yeah, did you guys talk about the rain of ash in the Pacific Northwest? Bird's comments on air quality reminded me of it. My in-laws said that there have been days where going outside makes your eyes burn.

That's true here in the Santa Clara Valley, too, over 100 miles from the fires. The last time I inhaled this much smoke, I was holding a cigarette.

Did you get ash accumulation? The photos I saw it kind of liked like gray snow.

Friends in San Francisco were complaining of ash. Kind of like dark gray dandruff.

That's got to be surreal. It's also what's making these fits so difficult to control. You put out an area, but then a few hours later hit ash comes down and lights it up again, out lights a new place up.

Plus I've read stories about fighting wild fires where the blaze was so big that the fire fighters literally had to worry about their shoes melting when getting close enough to actually run a line to it. Ugly stuff.
