A wildfire on San Bruno Mountain may threaten some homes on the South side of the mountain along Sister Cities Blvd tonight. These shots, taken by a reader on Drake Avenue (across Hillside) at around 8:35 p.m., show the fire heading close to South SF as "numerous firetrucks rush[ed] to the scene along with several helicopters on hand to battle the flames from the air." The area is a new development of million dollar homes and are "in the line of fire."
According to the Gate, the five-alarm five has burned so burned 175 acres so far. It seems a few streets in Brisbane were evacuated earlier, "but the fire is now moving away from that area." Around 200 Brisbane residents are have been evacuated so far, and about 200 firefighters are on the scene.
