Latest News about the Rainbow Fire

Precious little is out there for the worried residents of Fallbrook and Rainbow, but here's what I've gleaned from other blogs: The Rainbow fire as of 8:30 p.m. Tuesday night is only 10% contained, is currently burning on Rainbow Glen Road, which is the road Morning Song Farm is on. In this "Rice Canyon" fire, 206 homes, 40 outbuildings, 91 vehicles and an astounding 20,000 avocado trees in 7,500 acres have been consumed by flames.

No word about livestock rescue efforts. The near-total news blackout of Rainbow continues to leave us very frightened, but hopeful.

Roads are currently shut down for returning evacuees, but if there is anyway I can get into the area to feed, water and check on my animals, I will at daybreak.
