San Diego fires dangerously close to home

The fires that are burning out of control in Southern California are mere miles away from my parents' home. Luckily, both of them are away in Taiwan at the moment and don't have to deal with the mandatory evacuation orders. Still, it's really scary.

SignOnSanDiego has an a map of fire areas and road closures, but the website has been really slow today. There's also a thumbnail of the map and links to breaking fire-related stories (some of which don't actually go anywhere) on their home page.

LATimes has more useful articles linked from their local news site, including this one that talks about the 250,000-household evacuation in San Diego.
