Fire update

From Courtney tonight:

The evacuation center for affected residents of Irvine and nearby areas is Lakeview Senior Ctr at Lake and Alton, Irvine. Irvine fire hotline is 714-628-7085. AM radio 1640 has messages from Irvine Emergency Broadcast system/Irvine police department running on a loop. No immediate threat to homes reported as of 9:30 p.m. Voluntary evacuations only for Northwood, Portola springs neighborhoods. Keep your windows closed to avoid the smoke. Good luck everyone. Peace and love, writing from Deerfield/Irvine Ctr Dr.

The OC Register has a fire central page with updates, information, maps and more. It’ll be updated throughout the night and extensively tomorrow. If anyone reading here has pictures, post them online where I can link to them, or send them to me and I’ll host them on flickr.

    The City of Irvine has issued a manditory evacuation for Amberhill in West Irvine:

    That street is over by the 261 toll road near Jamboree and the Tustin Ranch Golf Course.

    Someone has been annotating a Google Map with all the locations:

    I’ve also been aggregating information onto my site for the past few hours.

    The above evacuation order was lifted a few hours later. As of this morning it looks like firefighters were able to hold a line at Portola Parkway and the 261 toll road.
