The recent dry and warm weather are causing havoc today near my neighborhood.  A brush fire started around 8am this morning and it spread fast northbound.  We live just east of the Yorba Linda Blvd and north of Highway 91.  We’re not in the path of the fire, nor in the evacuation area.  However, the fire is less than 3 miles from here, and it bellowed a lot smoke in the air, making it difficult to breath outside.  The air conditioning inside the house is on full blast, hoping to clear out the burning smell.

Traffic has pretty much come to a stand still here.  I-91 is closed. Routes Northbound on Yorba Linda Blvd and East of La Palma are closed.  Firefighters from Los Angeles County have showed up to help out.  The fire trucks have been busy driving up and down the street.

The neighborhood school, Travis Ranch, is being used as an evacuation center.

More info on the Orange County fires are on OC Register, LA Times, and NBC Los Angeles.
