  1. The 101 is open according to the CHP. There is concern that the eucalyptus trees north of Calle Real could catch on fire. Roger, is there anyway you can inform us readers on Edhat when the fire is totally out? It’s especially important for persons living north of the 101. Thanks

  2. I’m afraid for my cat because he won’t stay in the house and they had to treat the property for rodents there is nothing I can do about it he won’t stay in he’s very strong..He is my partner and I don’t want to lose him especially not in this way all he doesn’t know any better…I’m trying to give him alot of food prayer is the only thing that has ever worked just prayer for my little guy.

  3. La Cumbre/State, during Thomas Fire, gas stations working, and street lights working, no Edison caused emergency of turning off power. An emergency is an absence of choice (offered by Edison and PG&E); just look at the video and think about what would happen to traffic trying to evacuate, and people with little gasoline unable to fill their tank to evacuate (because gas stations need power to work pumps).
