    The Santa Clarita Valley is on fire and I was evacuated on Saturday afternoon. I was just informed that the fire was started by a hawk that was electrocuted by some power lines, it was killed and fell burning to the brush and ignited this wildfire. I have some incredible pics of the fire (Billy Kay these pics should look familiar) I will try to post them!

    Terrible! It looks containable to me but I don't really know the terrain. Are these taken from your home?

    Thanks Gordon, dont worry I wont go near it. shortly after the pics were taken I decided it was best to leave and not chance it. So I grabbed my dogs and got the heck out of there!

    And yes Heyder these are taken just down the street from where I live (probably 100yds from my front door)!

    The firemen out here are just incredible and I hope they can save your house. I know a couple of others who were evacuated too so here's good thoughts for you all.

    That's just horrible! There's really nothing you can do at this point, and I'm sure you feel so helpless right now.

    I hope everything works out OK for you, Prophet. Please keep us updated...

    Yeah, I went to work (one of my jobs)today and realized that they are using the college as a base camp for all of their operations! The place was packed w/ fire trucks and fire men!

    It brought chills to my spine! Those guys are real heroes, and my prayers are for them.

    CNN is showing it now Prophet. They said it jumped the line the the fire fighters made Hopefully they will get it under control VERY soon. So far they are saying no dwellings have been lost. Lets hope it stays that way. Best of luck to you.

    Its been extremly difficult because of the high temps and swirling winds. the fact that those hills havent burned since early 1960's doesnt help either. I really do hope the firefighters, can get a hold on the situation, safely. Thank you Dopackster and everybody for all of your well wishes, please keep your fingers crossed for me.
