Jesus mother of fuck...

According to the U-T:
18K acres on fire, 0% (zero percent) contained
Courts closed
Residents advised to stay off highways and cell phones
Mandatory evac of everything north of CA-56, south of Del Dios Highway, east of I-5, west of I-15. This is a huge area, 100 square miles, that includes Rancho Santa Fe, Carmel Valley, much of Encinitas, 4S Ranch, Rancho Penasquitos, half of Rancho Bernardo. Both of Eric's parents houses are now under mandatory evacs
Qualcomm Stadium is open as a shelter. (Also Escondido, Santana, Mira Mesa, and Steele Canyon HSs. The Poway Community Center was open, dunno if it still is.)
The county emergency website is overwhelmed.
Six houses in southern Escondido have burned.
The fire jumped I-15 near the Pomerado Rd/West Bernardo Dr exit, just south of Lake Hodges.
Large animals are being sheltered at the Lakeside and Poway rodeos and the Del Mar Fairgrounds.

In the '03 Cedar Fire, the fires stopped spreading into Poway and the regions north and west of it because the winds died down. If the winds continue over the next few days, we're going to lose a tremendous piece of north county.
