Got the ok to return home about an hour ago and we went straight back. Our house is as we left it. I'm very grateful for @CAL_FIRE for protecting the community and to you guys for the emotional support the past couple days. Thank you guys
For those wondering we are fine, we got a hotel a few cities south and are currently staying there. My clothes smelled like smoke and ash. No idea if the fire reached our house, but according to the radio some houses roughly 1 km away from ours don't exist anymore.
We were told we had to leave. The thick smoke and heat when I opened the front door startled me. I think our house is going to burn soon
Woke up to a nixle alert an hour ago (11:45 pm) to an evacuation warning for a fire. Didnt take it seriously until I heard the nearby police sirens waking up the neighborhood. I walked outside and saw this on the hill from my front porch.
