    Bad fires out here...mandatory evacuations ordered for neighborhood 1.5 miles from us. Evac warning 3/4 mile north of us... if it jumps the freeway we’re definitely going have to bail too...

    It’s 2:00 am PST and I am getting stuff packed just in case. Fire is at the Aliso Canyon gas facility that poisoned us a couple years ago...


    This is concerning.

    It’s now mandatory evac for the areas in yellow. That is 3/4 mile from me. It would have to jump freeway to put us on evac status. Wind gusts near 50mph.

    Good luck, I’m about two miles west of the fire and it’s moving in the opposite direction.

    Yeah, my office is in Burbank and not sending my kids out with the bad air quality. Needless to say I called out. My office will be half empty as 4 additional colleagues live in Porter Ranch where they’ve all been evacuated.

    I’m north of the fire in Saugus can’t see very much from the pics but passed the mountain and is starting to burn on this side of the mountain too.

    roads are all empty with only wind blowing leaves everywhere and fire trucks at full speed , is unreal.

    Yeah you too.

    Made it to work today in Studio City, but still a bit stressed, even though I think I'm 100% safe as far as my house is concerned.

    Hang in there, guys. Being from So Cal I know what you’re dealing with and it ain’t good.

    Be safe. I’m praying for you.

    Guys, and I only ask this because I care, but have you raked? I hear that is important.

    (sorry I know this is serious, but I joke when faced with helplessness in crisis)

    I did this morning...with all the wind there are leaves, pine needles and palm tree debris all around my house. I’m sure in an hour or two I’ll have to do it again.
