San Francisco fires...
I don't know if you guys are aware but it appears that wild fires are reported very close to the city and 20k people have already had to evacuate...actually it appears that these fires are dangerously close to the metro area if not already within it. Its sounding as if these fires broke out overnight with no evident cause.
I was just in San Francisco about 3 weeks ago and the entire region looked bone dry... loved the scenery there, I'm hoping this isn't the last time I'll get to see it.
Edit: researching deeper it appears that the 20k evacuated were not all within the San Francisco vincinity and the fires are spread throughout Northern California and not just San Francisco.
