Right now we have a huge brushfire burning not far from my home. About 17,000 acres and 2 homes gone as of this post. The fire, currently called the Chatsworth fire cause that's where it started yesterday, has forced a few people I know to evacuate. As I type this I hear helicopters overhead but luckily for me anyway it is moving away so I don't think I will have to evacuate.
All those in Southern California beware it's going to be a long fire season.
