San Diego Fires 2014 Update From Carlsbad Poinsettia Fire
Yesterday it seemed that every hour a new fire started here in the San Diego area. There are currently 9 separate fires burning, including the Poinsettia fire in Carlsbad. We are right there with that fire, with our work being under manditory evacuation. We are packed and ready to go if need be. Please do pray for everyone that is now displaced and those that have lost everything. It is so incredibly sad.
