Ummm...they are ok so far but I really don't think that they are the important places to be honest. They are both tourist attractions and people are frightened and losing their homes all over here...yes, I said here.. I am at ground zero with my paralyzed grandmother. The Sawtooth fire and the Millard fires have now combined to make a massive fire that is tearing across the desert this morning. I'm scared out of my wits that we will be burned out. I really applaud the firefighters. I have heard helicopters and planes day and night since the fires broke out.
If we make it through this it will be because they have fought so fiercely.

Has the fire crossed Old Woman Springs Road yet?
The fire has stayed to the west of Old Woman Springs Road. The firefighters from Rancho Cucamonga Fire Department did a great job Monday night control burning that area. The fire line has held. It is now part of the containment area.

My parents live on Hibiscus Drive in Morongo. They are vacationing in TX right now and have been having trouble getting any information on their home and exactly how close the fire is to it. Does anyone have any information about that street specifically? We have read about the mandatory evacuations just a few streets north, but nothing about Hibuscus Drive.

Thank you! We are feeling a little helpless and extremely worried.

Sorry to hear of all the loss for so many. On a side note, I've heard conflicting reports and just want to make sure that PioneerTown's antique bowlling alley wasn't burned? Has anyone actually been up there and seen the old buildings?

Hi folks. I'm laid up with a busted-up knee right now, here at home. I have been trying to keep up with every bit of information I can relating to this wildfire, because a friend and her husband are assigned to the Marine Corps base near 29 Palms. He is stationed in Iraq, and she is currently with family in another state.

Anyway, I'm just trying to consolidate as much news as I can into one place on my blog. The site for the blog is www.jimreilly.com if you'd like to stay up to date with me.

Reading one or two stories from victims of this terrible fire, I am sadden to see the insurance fraud process has started with false claims of lost treasures. It hurts those with true claims.

Hello. Im a member of the San Bernardino Sheriffs Mountain Search and Rescue team. I was dispatched to the Sawtooth fire, and worked in close hand with the Morongo Basin Search and Rescue team as well as the Sheriff's Dept., CDF, and the local agencies. As far as everyone conflicting stories concerning the historic buildings in Pioneer Town. I was there, I seen it first hand. Every single historic building is still standing!! The bowling alley, to Pappy an Harriets, etc. Thought Id let you all know! And I would like to send my respects to Gerald Guthries family! Im sorry for your loss. Guthrie, a 57 year old native of Pioneer Town was the only fatality. Rest Is Peace Gerald.

Thank god for the firefighters! We here are all so concerned for
the safety of the residents......we just can't believe the fire is raging out of control like it's been.........my uncle lives on the west side of Big Bear and we've heard it's heading that way now.
Are you safe now @ your location?
