Santa Clarita a suburb of Los Angeles under Siege by Fire
One of the scariest forces of nature has attacked the Santa Clarita area FIRE. As of this writing 1500 hundred homes are in danger more than 17 homes destroyed and numerous other commercial structures. The size of the fire is about 35 square miles approximately 22,000 acres of land.
This is sadly only contained depending which news outlet you turn on to about 10-20%.
There is a special connection to this area for a few reasons for me. One of course is my connection to the Lange Foundation, the Animal Rescue organization that we support. This is where Satchmo used to be fostered. More importantly where St. Bonnies Animal Sanctuary is, the satellite “ranch” of the Lange Foundation.
Needless to say last I heard, numerous local volunteers went and saved the animals and are fostering them nearby. The concern I have is these volunteers’ homes are also in jeopardy hope the Fire Department will be able to save them.
Those of us who live on the West Side of Los Angeles can only watch with anxiety because the roads are closed. We could not go and help.
To give you the summary. The Sand Fire broke out Friday afternoon along the northbound 14 Freeway near Sand Canyon Road and rapidly spread over thousands of acres to the east of Santa Clarita.
As of this writing there are more than 1600 Fire Fighters battling this huge fire. More than 15 helicopters aided by 122 Engines.
One of our friends who used to be very active on this platform years ago Connor T. MacIvor is right in the thick of this mess. Hopefully Connor and his family are all right.
