Fires in SoCal

I just spoke with a friend in San Diego - they were evacuated at 2AM this morning. Apparently at least four homes on their block have burned, including the house right next door to them (they saw it on the news).

MarketWatch has an audio from Herb Greenberg describing his evacuation. Here is his blog:

This is remarkable. They’ve just evacuated a major part of San Diego: Everywhere East of the I-5, North of the 56 and South of Lake Hodges. If you know San Diego, this is, well, half the area. My area, Carmel Valley, is included. This is JUST east of Del Mar. Total track home city, but also includes Rancho Santa Fe.
It is really smoky at my house in Orange County, but it is safe.
