The fire started West of Redding,& is now into the city.
Firefighters are now evacuating people instead of fighting fires.
We lived three hours West of there,& this is heartbreaking
to see/hear.

Have several sets of friends there. Evacuated. One set, parents lost house. News here says they may evacuate ALL of Redding tonight if the wind shifts.

Other friends kids just moved to Weaverville. Not looking good there. Last check, 12 miles away.

Digging down into the CalFire report, with all the evacuations, road closures, saw something I had not seen:

Cause: Mechanical Failure of Vehicle

Yea - sounds like it started from a travel trailer tire failure.
It's also devistated areas SW of Redding.
Evacuation orders have increased.I can't imagine this happening there.

We have a very good friend whose house has burned. They are OK but donít know much more than that right now.

Talked to a Friend (& TR6 owner) in Redding last night.
He told me that they stopped the fire from continuing into Redding,
& are now trying to contain it in the outlying areas.35% contained.
There are other fires burning in the Northern part of the state.
Highway 299,& Highway 20 are still closed,last I heard.

According to the map, fire is about one mile from the ghost town of Deadwood. Contained means firefighters around it...not 35% out. The map grows every day.
