It seems like a world away

We listened to KNX 1070 online this morning to continuous coverage of the SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA wildfires.
The massive Station Fire in the Angeles National Forest nearly doubled in size overnight, threatening 12,000 homes.
We heard that the fire had burned 134 square miles of brush and trees and was just 5 percent contained.
Here, fall-like conditions meant we could see your breath when we stepped outside.
It seemed surreal that at least 6,600 homes in my native state were under mandatory evacuation orders, after burning at least 18 homes.
