i came back on friday night to witness one of the scariest moments of my life. there was a raging wildfire storming through my area of Rancho Cucamonga, that started from San Bernardino National Forest. by saturday afternoon, they evacuated everyone from my area because the fire was getting too close. it was literally raining ash, and my car had about a layer of ash on it that was about a half-inch thick. when i came out of the house, the smoke was so thick that it was hard to see in front of you, and it was even harder to breathe. people were packing up furniture and pets onto SUVs and vans, and many people thought they would never see their houses again. the fire burned over 200 houses and structures in the area, with many more going on as of right now. luckily, it ended up passing my city due to the strong Santa Ana winds that pushed the fire westward. but definitely, it was one of the craziest nights of my life. here’s sum pics of the day:
