SIGNAL BOOST THIS, PLEASE! IF YOU LIVE IN SAN DIEGO COUNTY, THERE IS NOT A LOT WE CAN DO ABOUT THESE OUT OF CONTROL FIRES! WHAT WE CAN DO IS HELP OUT THE BRAVE MEN AND WOMEN WHO ARE RISKING THEIR LIVES FIGHTING THE FIRES! IF YOU HAVE WATER BOTTLES, GATORADE, OR CLIF BARS, PLEASE DROP THEM OFF AT YOUR LOCAL FIRE STATION!
I have a fire station at the bottom of my street, we dropped off some water and Gatorade for them, they were very thankful. We talked about the fires, and currently the biggest threat is the San Marcos fire; they are afraid it may burn into downtown Escondido. I asked if it would be able to reach us by the morning, and he said it is very possible; however the fire is currently burning downhill and if the winds stay the way they are now, the fire will continue to move at a gradual pace.
I DON’T CARE IF THIS DOESN’T FIT YOUR BLOG TYPE, PLEASE REBLOG, THIS COULD HELP SAVE LIVES!

Escondido Fire from the 15 freeway, southbound side. 

While backed up in traffic on Wednesday, I decided to pull off to the side and try and snag some photos of the recent San Diego fires. It’s insane to see first hand the devastation these fires have on San Diego County. Hope all those around the Carlsbad/San Marcos area are staying safe.
