More fire stuff  
According to the news (one of) the fire has worked it's way over to northern claremont. Apparently a couple houses up on Mountain have burned down. More relevant to people i know (sithjawa) i heard something about how people in northern claremont should boil their water before drinking it or use bottled water. One time it sounded like they said this applied to people north of Foothill, but then i thought they said something about people north of Baseline. I'm not sure why people should be doing this, clearly there is some kind of bacteria they're worried about, but i'm really unsure how the fire could have caused that. So people between Foothill and Baseline (sithjawa) might want to try and find some more accurate info than second-hand half-heard news announcements.

Proctological Extraction
The fire must have burned out electrical lines that led to a water-purifying plant. Either that, or it burned some or all of the plant itself. That plant must feed into the water supply for those particular areas.
