So far the fire hasn’t burnt any structures by my parent’s house, but it is still extremely close. The weather station address is:

Just go down to the personal weather station section and my dad’s is the second one down that says “near the middle school”.

As long as that’s broadcasting it means the house is still there.

Right now, the Witch Creek fire or “Witch Fire” as they’re now calling it isn’t the main concern. The fire my parent’s are dealing with is the new “Poomacha Fire” which seems to be burning threw Pauma Valley, the North East end of Valley Center and headed toward Palomar mountain. So far, the burn area of this fire isn’t showing up on any maps. The map that seems to be the most accurate is:

Prayers are still very much needed.

My fire dept (like many around the state) sent an engine and a crew down to Southern CA. Our crew is working on the Which fire now. I know it’s been bad down there. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, your family, and your friends. Stay safe, good luck, and don’t take any chances.
