Taken just now in Ojai.

The flames are about five miles from me and clearly visible. Looks to be marching towards Thacher High School right now. Iím told itís burning aggressively within Ventura also.

Lots of video links in this story. Scroll down to the NWS Twitter video of the satellite view. Amazing how fast the fire spread.

Dear Jesus, please stop what you started.

As if it does anything more than sooth the fools that believe in it...

But I guess that's something...

Really wish though, that the PREACHERS would keep the stupid nonsense to themselves...

It is in FACT...

USELESS nonsense...

No one UP THERE receiving signals (Well, maybe Werner)...


I commend the hard working FIREFIGHTERS (and others) that work HARD as hell to keep this sh!t in check...

Such a TOUGH job...

This fire must be a beast because I'm a ways south in Santa Monica and it's like the inside of a chimney down here. Even inside my office reeks of fire.

There's a 4000 acre fire up near Sylmar / Lake View Terrace / Little Tijunga, perhaps that's causing your smoke.

Zoom in it will really show the effects of Santa Anna winds

I evacuated my spouse's house near Lake Casitas in west Ojai at 7 am and he followed at 10:30. I would like to thank those who posted a few months ago re the Santa Rosa and Napa fires. Those testimonies were fresh in my mind. I quickly realized the need to leave before exit routes to the Ojai valley jammed with traffic. Sure enough five hours later only two roads out are open (down from four). We packed the camping gear-- in case the house goes, my spouse will be camplng on his land during rebuilding.
I watched the orange glow over the ridge west of town last night as it blew south toward Ventura.
Feeling for those needing horse trailers--thinking some of the many horses in the valley may not make it out. It's a dog, llama, etc town and the humane society volunteers are asking for food donations (for the staff) and alfalfa, green hay etc. #Thomasfire on Twitter

Thick smoke is seen streaming from several fires, including the #CreekFire, in southern California in this @NASAEarth satellite view from this afternoon. Take a look: http://go.nasa.gov/2AWlHvt
