Thanks Ryan Coulter for this image of the Lilac Fire here in San Diego County.

Don’t be fooled by the name of this horrific fire that broke out literally hours ago in San Diego County.

It is being called “The Lilac Fire.” Personally I NEVER liked the smell of lilacs, very over the top in my book. My heart breaks for the folks who have already lost their homes and horses and other livestock. This fire has the potential to burn all the way to the Pacific Ocean…and as of 11:30 p.m. on Thursday night….zero containment.
