California Wild Fires Dec 17

A lot of JPL staff are being affected by the Creek Fire.

 Many others not yet directly threatened have their bags packed just in case fire direction changes.

Let's hope that the fires die down and can be extinguished before more extensive damage can occur and that JPL staff remain secure.

Just to be clear, JPL itself is not being threatened by the wildfire, it's about 15 miles away. However, there ARE residential areas being threatened, and yes, some JPL workers could be affected if they live nearby.
