I am living in Westbank.. I saw the fire near my home.. But, We're evacuated from my home.. right now We're at my brother-in-law's friends house. They're evacuating the whole area 4 hours ago... My father-in-law is so excited for fire near my home... I am waiting for 1 hour with car.. I and My wife smelled the fire in our pool at 2pm on July 18....

Just talked to my brother he lives across the street from that fire and wandered down and is currently standing 200 yards from the firefighters. They just waterbombed it. I was on the phone with him when the plane with the sirens went by...

Yea my uncle has been evacuated from there and another uncle who lives east of the fire but don't think they have been evacuate yet though but didn't even kno until I went to visit my dad yesterday. Hope everybody's place in the area is alright not a kewl thing to happen. Guess they are saying its most likely human caused which really sucks but atleast they don't think it was deliberate.
