evacuations are the High Valley, Bridlewood Country Estates,
Stoneridge, Heritage, Old Coach and Old Winery neighborhoods. Residents were being notified about the evacuations through the through
the reverse 911 system. They are being told to go to the Poway
Community Center at 13094 Civic Center Drive. Officials said that large
animals can be brought to the Poway Valley Riders Association Arena,
also known as the Poway Rodeo Grounds, at the corner of Tierra Bonita
Road and Poway Valley Road.

Blog from Poway:
Just overnight, the county’s blustering winds have pushed the wildfires through acres of brush toward surburban neighborhoods. My house resides on Standish Drive, a family-heavy area within five miles of the Poway Community Center and 10 minutes of Espola Road. My cousin and his family live on a street intersecting Espola Road, and evacuated earlier this morning. My neighbors are packing up their belongings into cars, though no one on my street has left their home yet.
