As a witness to the early minutes of this fire, I will tell you that a water-dropping aircraft could have extinguished this fire easily within the first hour. It's a shame that the response was lacking such equipment.

Stand strong, they will put the fire out. I used to live in Lake Elsinore and am very aware of the winds. Keep your homes soaked with water, this will help. But get out of there if it comes to close.
Best Wishes to all!!!

As a witness AND a Fire Fighter, I can tell you that this is bogus.

Did anything burn down? No... maybe a whole bunch of brush that would've burned a few days later. they wait until it gets to the road making all this brush impossible to burn at a later time.

I just called 911 and they put me in touch with the fire dept. They said the fire is over the mountain in the Camp Pendleton area.
