I am so happy your friend got out safe. As someone who lives only 40 minutes from Paradise I see people everyday who barely made it out of there. We were there one week before at the doctors and going shopping. Then I wake up to find out that its burning out of control and its like hell out there. I pray my past teachers and doctors are safe. The smoke here is so bad its like a thick fog and the suns like a red orange. I am am deeply happy your friend made it out.
