Wild Fire Update

Time for an update for all our East Coast friends.

We arrived back home in San Pedro on Sunday afternoon. The drive southbound through the Central Valley was very smoky. Visibility was about 1/4 mile or less.

I have screen grabbed two maps of So. Cal from the Wildfire App to show where the active fires are as of today (Thursday 10/31).

The little red dots indicate where the active fires as of today. We live in San Pedro which is down near Long Beach. No fires really close to us.

Wild fires get named kind of like hurricanes. The names usually denote something about the origin of the fire.

The big ones around here are the “Getty” fire which is near the Getty Center in West Los Angeles. The other big one is the “Easy” fire in Simi Valley, so named because it started on Easy Street.

Simi Valley is the home to the Reagan Library. You know that they’re not going to let that one burn.

The third fire is the “Riverside” fire that is in Riverside County east of Los Angeles.

And finally, don’t forget to download the Wild Fire App. It’s free.
