I just got out of class and drove up there with my mom. We took the Jamboree Road all the way down in Irvine. We got as far as Santiago Hills and Jamboree where the police won't let anyone go any further. At that point, you can already see the flames. If the fire jumps that point, there is a lot of dry brush that can just be eaten up quickly.

Vic, even though it may be exciting to see what is going on, people should stay away from the site of a fire and let the Fire Department do their duty.

I saw the fire near Northwood!
It was huge and the air smelled really bad!
Everyone was evacuating and the most of the roads were closed

Just got home from Portola area. Some people we know just needed to evacuate from Northwood, and the flames are getting higher. Another neighbor said those fires we see that are closest are backfires the firemen have starteed to try to control the situation. Hopefully it will.

The person he lives with went home to wet down the house. Can someone please tell me if they live in Irvine, how far away the fire is from there? Thanks!

The fire would have to burn through about 14 miles of city to get to Turtle Rock..should be OK. Claremont Street is far enough that your son is safe for now. Fire is not contained at all. Everything depends on the winds, which are blowing strong unfortunately.
