Thousands of professional firefighters can’t get this fire under control. Thousands. Supported by further thousands of voluteers including some selfless heroes from California Department of Corrections (inmates). They can not get it under control.
At last count (that I read), 56 people have died. I take no pleasure in this in any way. BUT DAMN! If there are thousands of people fighting this fire and are not making any progress for putting it out, why on earth would you stay in the path like you are going to fight it with a garden hose?
Don’t be an idiot. Your stuff can be replaced. You can’t. If they tell you to leave just fucking leave.
