For those of you fire victims with large animals (i.e., horses, emus, et al.) or even not so large animals (i.e., Sprinkles, et al.), a Capitola reader just informed us that you can take your beloved pets to the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds. Due to today's raging wildfire, Evacuation facilities are set up there, and you can find them at 2601 East Lake Ave., Watsonville. For more information, call 408-335-5355.

Also, Santa Cruz Sentinel gives out the following handy info:

Road closures: Eureka Canyon Road north of Hames Road; Highland Way at Summit.
Red Cross: Staging at Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds, 2601 East Lake Ave., Watsonville.
Animal Services: Santa Cruz Animal Services helping with large animal evacuations. 408-454-7303.

Also, residents with animals can also bring them to Sprig Lake on the
eastside of Hecker Pass Highway
. (Thanks for the info, reader.) And as always, be careful out there.
