Witch Creek Fire Day 4

UPDATE (9:29 PM):

7:20 p.m. - Residents of the Oak Tree Ranch community in Ramona who would like information on their homes are being asked to call (760) 789-1382. Approximately 54 homes have been destroyed there.


111 PENN



Map of most current fire activity and evacuee areas.

For those of you looking to go home (and I'm sure many of you are), Ramona is still without drinkable water and many areas are still without power. With luck, water pressure should be restored within the next 12 - 24 hours and water will be chlorinated and clean. The boil water order should be able to be dropped at that time.

The fire danger appears to be largely to be East and North of Ramona at this time. I can't imagine that CAL wants to keep 36,000 residents out of their homes any longer than they absolutely have to. I'm crossing my fingers that Ramona residents start being let in by tomorrow as long as water pressure comes back up and is safe to drink once again.

UPDATE (4:14 PM):

Linda Morley, Ramona resident who lives in Ryland Homes, reports the following homes on Pile Street in Ramona were destroyed in the fire:

448 Pile Street

534 Pile Street

744 Pile Street

918 Pile Street


Ramona resources can now be found in the following areas:

The Ramona Sentinel has set up a page for damage reports here. At this time there is no damage reported. The Sentinel's main page has three addresses listed on Pile Street as destroyed. All future damaged and destroyed property will be listed on the damage report page.


There is now a Ramona Relief page where information can be posted. This includes information about yourself and your property, weather you are seeking info. or wanting to inform others.

The Ramona Sentinel has opened a Witch Creek Fire Blog page at Blogspot. Again, no postings have been made at this time, but please be aware that it is there.

The Los Angeles Times has an excellent article on fighting the fire in Ramona as the water ran out.

Jim 2.0's Blog with lots of excellent links to fire information.


The Poomacha Fire has merged with the Witch Creek Fire and is threatening the Palomar Mountain area.

The best source of general information I've found continues to be the Sign on San Diego Fire Blog.

New map of the fires from 4:30 AM this morning. This shows the old burn areas as well as the ACTIVE fronts on the the fire.

Another map showing time stamped activity of the Witch Creek Fire.

Electricity conservation is crucial in the San Diego area at this time. The Harris Fire in the South has burned through transmission lines that will not be repaired for 24 to 48 hours. Northern transmission lines from San Onofre in the North have also been interrupted and may take 1 or more days to repair. Brown outs or black outs could occur because of the limited electricity available. Evacuees returning to their homes are encouraged not to use electricity unless absolutely necessary.

From the SDG&E Website:

The California Independent System Operator (ISO) has declared a transmission emergency in Southern California. The ISO will assess this morning whether the declaration is still in effect. SDG&E has only two major transmission corridors that link San Diego to the rest of the western power grid. The Southwest Powerlink, which extends from the Otay Mesa area to Arizona, has been in the heart of the Harris fire and as a result is currently out of service. The other transmission corridor from the north currently also has major transmission lines threatened by the fires. We are hopeful that we will be restoring power to the crucial Southwest Powerlink in the next few days. In order to return this key transmission line to service, SDG&E crews will need to gain access to it and wash the smoke residue from it, then re-energize it. The restoration will be dictated by the fires progress.

The boil water order for Ramona is still in effect. Water pressure is increasing due to the generators working to pump water for the Ramona Municipal Water Station. Those in Ramona are encouraged to conserve water.

The fire in Ramona is being battled in the Highland Valley and Mt. Woodson areas. Due to the lack of water, planes are being used to fight the flames.
