Poomacha Fire – 15:30 Update

| October 24, 2007

I have some data on the Poomacha fire burning near Mount Palomar in northeastern San Diego County. A map generated by SDSU / Grossmont was used together with Google Earth and Google Maps to produce this representation of my best guess of what has been burning. Not everything within the red lines is on fire or has burned to ashes, rather this is the area where the fire is currently active.

Bruce Says – After checking some of the geo-spatial accuracy of the source graphic from SDSU (in the form I got it) I have to say take my coordinates and positions of the fire with a large grain of salt. We are still woefully short of “ground truth” on where this fire is.

    I just want you to know what a great informational service you are providing to so many people. I found your site via a GOOGLE for Witch Creek fire. My sister and her husband are Valley Center residents and my brother-in-law is a pastor. They are out of town – in Northern CA when the fire broke and cannot get home. He has emailed your website link to many people who need information to help with evacuation measures. I thank you so much for your perseverence. Yesterday was tough – your internet link was down all day. I am praying for you with your amazing blogging. God bless all of you in this effort and I am so glad your gorgeous horse is safe as well.

    We here at the ocean – many miles away from the fires – can smell the burning in the air – it is like a nuclear winter. The skys are gray and the air quality is so bad. My upstairs deck and windows are covered with soot and ashes. The ashes have even filtered inside the house. But it makes me feel so guilty for complaining – for knowing it is so more grevious for you there in the hinterlands. My prayers and good thoughts are going out to all of you in peril…..
