Oh yeah, we've been choking for days Jan! I've never ever seen it so bad
I live on the west side of the San Fernando Valley and the fire is clear on the other side. We can see the entire valley floor from our hill and we can actually see the fire - not just smoke but the bright orange and red glow of the actual fire.
My son's GF lives in Tujunga and he got a call yesterday that she and her family were evacuated. I offered them to come over to our house, but so far she has been at another friend's house further away from the fire in Sunland. I was so worried about their house when I heard this morning that a number of Tujunga homes went up. So far they've had no news on their home though.
ETA: Just spoke to the mom of my son's GF and last she heard houses 5 blocks from hers were gone, but no word on hers yet :^(
