Watching a report right now. An older man being interviewed said “This was going to be the house I died in....unfortunately, my house died before I did.”

A house I sold there 11 months ago burned down last night. One co-worker lost everything when her apt building went ablaze, another friend lost everything but the shirt on his back and his pickup last night when his house went up. I have buddies right now that live in Oak View/Ojai and they are now getting evacuated...these strong offshores sure aren't helping matters. I was in VTA today and it's pretty crazy.

Thats sad to hear man i have some friends that own businesses in Ventura and Santa Paula that are preparing for the worst.Its really expected to blow hard the next couple days.If you look at a map of the current fires LA is being surrounded by fire.Its not lookin to good.

Good luck down there, you guys. Just went through the same thing up here and even though my family and I were lucky and all remained safe, it was still a pretty harrowing experience. Sending good vibes your way. Stay safe!

Pulled my boat from storage last night. Right by Rincon, Glad I did, it's under mandatory evac right now.
I hope Woodman's place weathered the firestorm....

This sucks!
I have a lot of family in Carpinteria and I'm not positive but I'm pretty sure my sister in law's house burnt down last night. They live on a big avocado ranch up Rincon canyon and last I heard the canyon was on fire. Huge evacuations, my mother in law called at 5 this morning saying she was evacuated and they're in the parking lot of Albertsons watching the flames consume the foothills headed to Montecito.
