Hi friends,

Thanks for your messages and concern. Logan, Christie, and I are safe. We left our home in Chico, CA last night because of the Camp Fire and are staying with my mom, and her crazy dog Henry, in Red Bluff.

Here's a summary of the Camp Fire as reported by USA Today:

“Nearly 30,000 people were forced to evacuate on Thursday when a wildfire roared through this California town, located about 180 miles northeast of San Francisco.

In less than 24 hours, the Camp Fire torched Paradise homes, — businesses, supermarkets, restaurants and a retirement home — was left ‘pretty much...destroyed,’ California Fire Capt. Scott McLean said.

By Friday morning, the area remained under siege, with reports that two large fires had burned 15,000 acres and were threatening multiple communities, with 75,000 homes under evacuation orders.”

My thoughts and prayers go out to the families who have been impacted by the Camp Fire, and to the firefighters who are working hard to contain it.
