Santiago Canyon Fire Update
We went and took a drive through some of the area yesterday. It is pretty mind blowing to see how close to homes and businesses the fire came. Brand new homes in Portola Hills, businesses along Bake, then up along Bake into Foothill Ranch and then east into the wilderness area around Cook’s Corner.
INJURIES: Five minor injuries of personnel
ACRES BURNED: Approximately 27,630
- 12 outbuildings were damaged and 8 destroyed
- 8 residential structures were damaged and 16 destroyed
Here are some more images, although nothing puts this into perspective like seeing it in person. Keep in mind that at one point the actual line of flames was 38 miles long!
