Forced Out by Deadly Fires, Then Trapped in Traffic


People fleeing the Camp Fire in Paradise, Calif., abandoned their vehicles because of traffic; their cars remained along the road on Sunday.CreditCreditJim Wilson/The New York Times

PARADISE, Calif. Thousands of residents in the wooded town of Paradise did what they were told to do when the morning skies turned dark and an inferno raged across the hills: They got in their cars and fled. What happened next was the vehicular equivalent of a stampede, packing the roads to a standstill.

Paradise is about 90 miles north of Sacramento. Are you affected with the fire?

The weather has been bad around here. Sports games have been cancelled. See people with air masks on. I've put off bike riding.



I just really feel sorry for the people missing loved ones.

uhhh..that picture only shows 3 cars and a truck..wtf. if people were fleeing their cars due to traffic, id expect something like this.. (not fire, but as example) regardless, hope the fire is contained soon and people find each other. so sad.
