Griffith Park Fire

Hi all, I know some of you are aware that I live in Los Feliz, just south of the base of Griffith Park.

As you probably have heard, the fire has ravished abut 300 acres of historic Griffith Park. The flames have not touched my place, and though the homes 2 block away have been evacuated, we think that the fire will not be able to jump the main road, Los Feliz Blvd.. There was smoke that entered our home, but we are all safe and Moose, my dog, is all right. We have the AC on and are keeping fans running to get the smoke moving and hopefully out of our home. It is intense to look up out of our balcony and see an orange sky....but we know that the firefighters are doing all they can to contain the fire. It's really sad. I was concerned all day, but with the evening settling in and making firefighting so much more difficult, I am at a loss for words.

and with that, I say thanks for all your concern.

I will pray for you and your family. I know you will be safe... I hope you don't lose your house.

I heard on the the news the fire was contained... I'm hoping nothing happened to your house. We don't have huge wildfire here... just tornado's and possibly earthquakes living near the new Madrid Fault.

I hope Moose was not too shaken... ha ha I bet you have something you carry him in like a baby.. ha ha

That's got to be terrifying to contemplate. Hope all the flames are out by now.
