” The Oak Glen fire has grown to just over 1,000 acres and has forced 2,000 people out of their homes. The 640-acre Pendleton Fire in San Bernardino County has flared up because of rising winds and is now threatening 900 homes.
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger declared a state of emergency in San Bernardino County, where the Pendleton and Oak Glen fires are threatening a combined 3,000 homes.State fire spokesman Jason Meyer said 2,100 people have been ordered evacuated as the fire moves within a quarter-mile of some homes in Yucaipa.
The blaze erupted at 3:30 p.m. Monday and was 45 percent contained before winds began to kick up Tuesday morning. No homes have been damaged.
All schools in the Yucaipa-Calimesa school district were closed Tuesday.
A few miles away, the 1,013-acre Oak Glen fire was 40 percent contained. It’s threatening about 2,000 homes. One home was damaged, but no injuries have been reported in either fire.”
Lots of praying going on today, as more people are being evacuated from their homes. The fire is close to our house but seems to be pulling the other way because of the wind….
Today I had a late mid morning snack. Oikos Greek Yogurt, apple slices, cinnamon, and Zoe’s Granola. I love eating 5 small meals a day, it keeps me going!!!
