A fire has torched
75 to 100 at least 500 acres in Larkin Valley of Santa Cruz County between the Watsonville airport and Seascape Golf course, according to ABC 7. Also, parts of Highway 1 are currently closed in both directions in the area. (Northbound traffic, though, has been diverted at Miramonte Avenue and southbound traffic at San Andreas Blvd.) Evacuations have been orders for a few residences of the area.
According to TV news reports, passersby spotted someone along Highway 1 in Watsonville getting out of his or her and starting the fires.
Over in Oakland, a six-alarm fire (or three-alarm fire depending on who you read) is currently roaring at "several buildings in the area of International Boulevard and 93rd avenues." No injuries have been reported.
If you remember, just last month thousands of acres were burned in the Santa Cruz mountains just last month. Be careful out there, people.
