Additional reports are that of the 4 Firefighters burned yesterday, 2 are critical and 2 are moderate. A little while ago, the IC in San Diego County called for 150 more strike teams. A strike team consists of 5 engine companies = 750 more engine companies. That helps put the fire situation in perspective.
The San Diego County Sheriff just stated that this is the worst disaster in San Diego County history.

We have fire crews from the DNR and USFS deploying right now via straight driving to SoCal. Sadly, they could not be airlifted due to wartime restrictions.

As a former San Diego resident and with family on standby in Escondido, my thoughts and prayers are with all hose heads working in the zones.
