Right now All the roads going down are either not moving or closed- The Gas stations have lines so long its stupid- We will go north if the fire progresses farther into town -So far I have heard all residences down from pearson are evacuating-There are three evac centers open and appear to be full -There are school busses lines up just waiting -Its gettin wierd -The last road going out on the east of town is backed up about 15 miles long with people trying to go down to the valley (it appears from my vantage point that is right where the fire is burning the worst- Jess

My daughter lives in the upper part of town by K Mart. She called me earlier to tell me that things were kinda crazy. How far up into town did it get? She was told they were evacuating the lower part of town up into the Taco Bell area.

The fire, which started Wednesday, had grown to more than 20,000 acres and threatened 4,600 structures, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. Twenty homes were confirmed to be destroyed, but officials said that number likely could double once crews were able to better assess the damage.
