The fire's eerie blaze over the mountains at night...

My friend Chelice took this picture the morning she was evacuated from her home... It was about 3:30 am in Chula Visita when she was awakened by a neighbour and told to leave her home.
"This is what I saw from the back of my house. It was less than five miles from my house. This is San Miguel Mountain. Actually, the fire was burning down the front of my mountain by the time I evacuated. The sky is getting clearer in my community and tonight I can see the moon! It’s not over though, the area north of here are still burning."
