Re: [californiadisasters] Sand Fire, Santa Clarita area

Thank you.  I need to forward this info to my boss who lives in the foothills of Sylmar.   From what I'm trying to put together, the fire is moving to the east and south of him.   Trying to get info or a map has been a challenge.   He's still up with his wife and kids trying to find out the same info.

Per the Hotlist and Tweeps listening to scanners it is in Little Tujunga near Dillon Divide and Kagel Canyon may be next... this thing is moving like it was daytime.

I hadn't heard of any structures going up yet... may I ask where and what?
It's not every day I can watch a fire from my balcony.   Here's a crappy video of a hot spot around 1 AM.
As of right now, it seems to be quieting down.  Or at least I am not seeing as big of an orange glow nor as much active flame from my vantage point in Northridge.   Could just mean it's hidden in ridge.   This is all on the SFV side, not the SCV side.   Temps are at 81 right now, which is astonishing for the hour.  This is the first and only July Santa Ana event I've ever seen in all my years living in the San Fernando Valley.

Thanks, Pam, for this post which I also did not see earlier.... this is a big deal... structures are now burning as of about 20 minutes ago as this is not laying down but still running in the middle of the night.
