@Mame,
My family's fine; people are understandably nervous about fires in general.

The smoke has definitely affected air quality. We have two with asthma, so we're trying to stay out of it as much as possible.

We've been noticing a hazy smoke in the air all day. I thought it was someone nearby burning leaves. It turns out that it's from the Minnesota wildfires.

Quote:
Smoke from a forest fire in northeastern Minnesota carried south by wind is entering Illinois, filling the sky over parts of northeastern of the state with a gray, smoggy haze.

"The whole sky is kind of a film of clouds over it," said Lake Villa resident Marie Braden, 49. "I had my windows open earlier, but had to close my windows. I just can't breathe with this." More

All of Calabasas is now under mandatory evacuation. We're safe in Orange County. One thing I did not miss about living in CA.

We've seen some terrible fires down here in San Diego, but the city has learned to invest in good equipment, planes with fire retardant materials, more fire fighters. Also, when there is a "red flag" alert, fire engines are stationed in the inland areas already and any reports of a small fire, gets immediate attention and thus far, it can help to keep fires under control. Nonetheless, we're all vulnerable here in California - it's bone dry everywhere!
