    Correction 3 critically injured and 1 killed fighting the fires in San Diego County.

    Also 4 more older people died trapped in their homes. Not sure where in So Cal that happened yet... /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    OK just got the details...

    Damn I hate this... The wind suddenly switched directions and rolled over a truck full of fire fighters. 1 was killed and 3 others critically injured... This happened in the Julian area of San Diego County.

    Here's a photo I just took of the Julian Fire in San Diego County. Keep in mind that this fire is about 50 miles from me.

    950 sq miles have burned.
    Death Toll now up to 18 including the fire fighter...
    2000 homes destroyed so far...

    All the fire fighters are exhausted. Most are working 36 hour shifts. Fixed wing aircraft bombers can not fly due to the high winds and heavy smoke. Only the sky crane helicopters are are in the fight right now.

    Thanks... Just heard that myself. Except that now they say 1 killed and 3 critically injured. I'm praying for the injured.
