So, a major fire broke out about 4.5 miles from where I live this evening. Apparently a high capacity gas line exploded, and the current damage count from CalFire is 53 houses lost and 120 houses damaged. We know at least one person has died, and probably in the range of a couple dozen injured. It's weird, and strangely familiar. After going through the Oakland Hills fire back in 1991 (I lived in Richmond at the time), I thought that there couldn't be anything more eerie than smelling the smoke and seeing Orange sky. I was wrong.

I saw flames shooting up over the hilltop from my apartment.
