Sherman Smith: "Paradise Hills, San Diego, a few miles from the Harris fire. We were mostly covered by smoke and ash but have not really been directly threatened by the fire itself."

Kay Taylor: "People and horses have been evacuated to a campsite in Chula Vista, near San Diego. These horses have been spray painted with their owners' names...
