[californiadisasters] Erskine Incident - Kern Co. - Lake Isabella

Late yesterday afternoon an explosive wildfire broke out on the south side of Lake Isabella and exploded across 19,000 acres in 18 hours destroying as many as 100 structures and threatening 1,500 additional structures. Three firefighters were injured from smoke inhalation. The fire area is under Red Flag Warnings today so fire growth is expected to be significant. This is the priority fire in California now with no-divert orders on aircraft yesterday as eminent life hazard existed on the initial and extended attack phases of this now project fire.
