September 2, 2016 (San Diego's East County) - One negative factor from this week’s fire on Skyline Truck Trail.
I personally called my neighbors at work to let them know that a fire had broken out close to their homes and that the should head home to take care of their homes, horses and pets. Most of them had a difficult time getting home because so many by-standers were parked on the shoulders of Skyline taking pictures with their phones that also included several Border Patrol cars, REALLY! If anything they should have been going from car to car getting them to move on and clear the road.
I plead and ask that people should think of those that live in the area that are trying to get home to save what they can and that any pictures that the by-standers were taking are not worth the lose of someones home or pets, just for them to grab a quick picture.
