For anyone interested in a view of the fires from far too close for comfort, surf over to Matthew Shugart’s Fruits and Votes. His latest post, including some updates in the comments, is here. If you just go to the main site and scroll down you can see some pictures of the smoke in the area.

If you are at all familiar with the area, you will find the following to be rather remarkable:

I-5 now closed between San Diego and Orange Counties.

The LAT‘s latest update on the fires is here. 1,155 homes — and counting. The story includes this helpful map of the location of the fires (Matthew is in Bonsall, which is near the Fallbrook fire).

The story also includes the following updates:

By late Tuesday, the blazes had burned 420,424 acres — about 656 square miles — and destroyed 1,155 homes, making them nearly as large as the fires in October 2024 that are considered the biggest in California history. Although only one death has been directly attributed to the fires, five others have been linked to them.

The whole thing is utterly remarkable and quite frightening.
