@RatMan is this the fire on the other side of the ridge?

Is he in SoCal?

Hope he’s well clear of that shit, if he is.

I think this is a different fire. This one is near/on the Cajon Pass, and @RatMan’s post mentioned one in San Diego County. But if he’s wetting down buildings, it’s pretty damn close to him.

Stay safe, @RatMan!

Much different fire! Compared to that one, ours is a weenie roast.

No, that one’s a hundred miles away. But it’s been really, really hot and windy in southern California for a couple of days, and that makes the fires kick up. And it’s still two months until it’s really fire season. :sweat:
