    This fire is insane. I can't believe how fast it is sweeping through towns.

    Very fast. One of my brothers managers woke up to a neighbor banging on his front door yelling fire, fire, fire! He ran to the back of the house, looked out the slider to see the back of his house on fire. Him and his wife ran straight to the car and left, lost everything.

    The winds are expected to increase tonight. Additional evacuations have been ordered for several areas including the city of Calistoga.

    It is just so sickening, like right in your gut, hurts, can't imagine losing it all like that, let alone friends and/or family and/or pets.

    Hey guys. Early Monday morning I was sent to the corner of Sears point to close the road due to another separate fire. It burnt up into the race way. I've been off the past 3 days. Going into work tonight and they said don't expect anymore days off until the fires are under control.

    That is horrible...like a war zone after a bombing raid..:eek:..

    Hard to believe all the death,destruction and terror so many people in the USA have had to face the past month--makes me feel guilty,having no real weather issues or natural disasters to deal with here--so far,anyways..

    I guess a brick or masonary home with a sprinkler system is the best to have out there where wildfires happen often..
