The fire situation in my childhood neighborhood has worsened overnight and today. This attached map from the LA Times shows the expanded fire area. If you click on the man in the bed you will see that my high school, Crescenta Valley High School, had been designated as a shelter, but that people are now being sent to the next community and La Canada High School. According to weatherunderground.com the highs today in La Crescenta are expected to be 104, so no help there.
The evacuation area has spread and now seems to include my old neighborhood. My friend Drew's neighborhood on Ocean View Boulevard has been evacuated, although they have been allowing people to return to pick up some belongings.
