California Camp fire

...In the Town of 'Paradise', the Fire Spread at 2 Miles a Minute, that's 120 MPH. The wind was 40 with gusts to 70 MPH, heading West to the Town of Chico.  The speed of advancement was the Fire 'Jumping' long distances. The Roads out were jammed, some left their vehicles and Ran for their Lives, and lived, Badly Burned. Unable to see in the Thick Smoke, some drove down Unknown dead-end roads, and were Trapped in Their Cars and Perished with Their Families. Others Never received the Emergency Warning to Leave NOW, or just waited to long to leave, died it their Homes. Vehicles 'Flanked' by the Fire, with No Oxygen, the Engines Quit, Trapping Adults and Children with-in the Blaze. The Entire Town of 'Paradise', is completely Wiped-Out, Gone! Many Pet Cats Survived...Must have found a Culvert or similar. As of Today 81 Persons Dead, ages 8-80+, 800 Souls Still Missing. Say a Prayer and Donate. GOD Bless the Firefighters, And Other Heroes, whom saved Many. Thank You!! There are even Firefighters, who have Lost Their Homes, While Fighting This Blaze! MJ

Speechless... Thank you marlinjack. Do we know of any Pantera brothers that live/lived here?

,,,I.am just down the I-5 in Manteca. Been breathing the smoke for a week. Feel very Lucky and Blessed, my family is safe. I do Not know of any Pantera Owners in that area of California. I would add we are talking a Loss of 13,000+ Homes, and climbing. with another 5000, threatened. 160,000 Acres Lost.  Mostly, These Souls escaped with northing more, but their lives. They have Nothing But US! GOD Bless.

...I must be clear, this fire was named for the 'Campfire Road', where this fire was first spotted. It was NOT caused by someones' careless Campfire. It is alleged  that a High Voltage/High Tension Wire failed at a Tower, In the Wind, in the same vicinity and near the same time as when the fire was first reported. And At the same time P.G.&E. reported a Failure in that Line. There were 2 Other small towns between the start of the fire and Paradise. The Firefighters, for now, have slowed it from hitting the town of Chico. 80% Contained, as of now, and Rain has Started Here.  MJ

The Woolsey Fire in southern California that burned from Chatsworth in the north end of the San Fernando Valley all the way to the ocean in Malibu, it's origin is also being traced to a power line failure belonging to So Cal Edison due to Santa Ana winds.  It's time to get the utility lines underground.  I have many friends, acquaintances, and clients who were evacuated and many of whom lost homes or came home to damaged homes.  Some were very lucky!  Fortunately, southern California didn't experience the tremendous loss of life of the Camp Fire in the north.
