    Fires around Temecula

    The smoke you are seeing is probably from the Temecula area. There are two fires going right now. One is on Camp Pendleton and the other is just SE of Temecula towards the desert. I look out from my house and see the flames. They both started Sunday afternoon.

    There is/was a fire on Camp Pendleton. I live in that area and don't see too much smoke now. The big one now is in SE Temecula. It started Sunday and has got gradually worse. I could see the flames from I-15 this afternoon. There was also a small fire in the Wildomar area(?) I saw the smoke from I-15 and that appeared to be the general area.

    I don't mind saying seeing all that smoke brings back bad memories. I lost my house in the Fallbrook Fire in Feb of '02, and the SoCal firestorms in October last year were/are fresh on my mind.

    My prayers are with those closest to the current batch.
    I hope you have a big trunk... 'cuz I'm puttin' my bike in it.

    The fire in the Temecula area is near Vail Lake (site of races) and depending on where the wind goes might be headed for the north slopes of Palomar Mtn.

    The fire did go towards Vail Lake. From the road it looks like almost the entire area was hit pretty hard. I couldn't see any areas that didn't get hit.
