SoCal brush fires

I was upclose and personal with the Anaheim brush fire today. I almost lost the stang and my life. I was on my way home from looking at an apartment and the radio said there was a fire in that area but it was under containment and was ok to go that way. Traffic was slow which didn't surprise me but as I got closer it got bad quick. The winds picked up and just made it a nightmare. There was flames that got kicked up as I was next to the fire, and just as i was passing they jumped up on the freeway and crossed. They had the other direction closed but didn't close the east bound side yet. The flames came damn close to me and my car. These things are so unpredictable. There was only 2 ways I could go home and both had fires so I guess either way I was screwed. I'm just glad to be alive and in one piece. Here's a link to the pics I took. The flame pic is the ones that came across the freeway, and I was sitting there as I took that pic. Slideshow of pictures, photos, and videos, from webshots

Stang first... It's good to see you have your priorities straight.

Glad you made it out okay.

If the winds calm down they should be able to gain control of everything. i hope the freeways open up again too or monday morning is going to be a nightmare. Ill pm you in a few minutes with my cell number....I'm actually signing a lease for my apartment tuesday but it's all good...i think going out with a mustang guy and grabbin some beers would be great.I know MonteCiton will be out here In january.

SoCal beaches FTW

Good luck with the freeways for Monday!! Should be good to go by then, not much left to burn at this point haha

Brent, you should be fine in downtown LA, Los Angeles county is much much larger than just downtown

glad your car survived the flames
