Rice Canyon Fire – 1515 Update

| October 23, 2007

This scrap of information was harvested from the comments section on the San Diego Union Tribune site:

” I just got back from a drive through part of east Fallbrook – with a police escort. It is surreal. Mission Road from the freeway to past Meagan’s bluff is on fire on both sides. Live Oak is burning from Mission to at least Gum Tree. On Yucca Road, at least 4 homes on the east side of the street are gone, with grass fires going all over. The homes in danger all have eastern exposure. The CDF station and new nursery on Mission east of Ranger are completely engulfed at the hilltops with 20-30 foot flames. North of Mission road is now burning toward DeLuz. Ranger Road is completely charred – we could only go about a half mile south from Mission on Ranger, and it looked horrible. The homes between the Nursery/Ranger and Yucca are all in danger. Pretty much it will just depend on how the wind turns. Also – coming back to Temecula you can see the glow of new fire on the western side of the hills toward DeLuz… Do NOT take Deluz to try and get to Fallbrook. We all need to turn to God and pray for all who call Fallbrook home. “
