fire near my house in hills of murrieta, new fire 9/19 3 miles away

Recommended Posts

Thank you all for thinking of us.  Clinton Keith was shut down this morning.  I normally leave at 4:15 am to have a 1:15 commute.  at one point on my drive down the hill into town a CHP said it was closed and you have to go around through De Luz.  issue is I had a mini X on a trailer with no brakes (its half built) and the only other way out of my area is down a super step hill, where the sign says "Exceeds 26% grade" for about a mile.  I put it in first gear, flashers on and never went over 12MPH .  I was concerned my trailer was going to push me over the side of the hill and I would be the cause of fire #2 in my area.  all went well down the hill but it did take me 2:40 to get to work today:angryfire:

As I was driving north on the 15 from Temecula I saw about 30 little fires on the hill, they said it was only 10% contained but it looked good to me.  my wife is at home holding down the fort if some crazy wind thing decided to turn it another way

things are flaring up a  little more.   there are only two ways to get to our entire area 10x15 miles of homes on 5 acre lots.  the main way has been closed (Clinton Keith)   the other way is through DeLuz.  they are now not letting residence back up that way.  so if you came down the hill to go to work, you can not go home!  they said there is some danger of shifting the other way.  towards the ocean.  My wife is home and says all is well at our house so far.

 

Pray for no wind

John, glad to hear that you and your family are ok.

Crazy that we were just discussing fire danger on Saturday. 

Let me know if you need anything.
