Fire near Pala Temecula Road moving East at about 1pm. This view from my front porch. Hard to focus on finishing my syllabus for class tonight . . . According to East County Magazine’s emergency reports, the fire started when a car struck a power pole, sparking the fire. Over 100 firefighters are battling the blaze.

I drove to the high point near my house to get a better look. Several folks up there checking it out as well. Fire Season is here.
Update: as of 3:53 this afternoon, fire is now 300 acres and 40 homes evacuated.
Update:  as of 7:30 Tuesday morning, Aug 30, the fire is 60% contained, and those evacuated will be allowed to return to their homes later today. Last night’s marine layer really helped the firefighters.
