Brandon’s family have been evacuated from their Rancho Bernardo home in San Diego this morning due to the numerous wildfires. They were only able to take a few photos from the piano, important papers and their cats before firefighters rushed them out of their house. They are safe (closer to the coast) and staying at a family’s house, but their home is in great danger along with thousands of others.
It’s so sad to hear reports from them about how much worse this is than the Cedar fire a few years ago (that was the worst fire in 100 years). They reported seeing horses running on 1-15 from ranchers who are letting their animals go free so they have a chance to survive. Firefighters are also fighting to save the San Diego Wild Animal park (near their house) because they have no place to transport all the exotic animals.
My brother in law’s girlfriend’s parents house is only one of two houses that are standing after the fire ripped through their neighborhood overnight in Ramona. Her dad is a retired firefighter and spent all night on the roof with a garden hose.
Please keep our family (and the rest of the people in so. calif) in your prayers today. Thanks!
