Fires, San Diego: 4 reviews and 3 photos

  Ash Raining Down!
by lmkluque

You may be able to see the ash collecting on this plant. After checking the news I found out that the fire began about thirteen hours earlier more than 50 miles away and because of various factors, it raged out of control, wiping everything from it's path. These photos were taken the morning after it started.

It took days for the winds to change direction and weeks for the air and sky to clear, but the fires continued to burn hot spots for more than a month! More than 300,000 acres burned. 2,400 homes destroyed and at least 17 people died, including firefighters.

The moral of this warning is that coming to San Diego during an out of control forest fire is no fun and can be very dangerous to your person and to your health!
