Villalobos Rescue Center; Stay tuned, you can't get ahold of Rita, her phone blew up ... but she doesn't have any more details than they aren't letting people up the road, but if you are on the way, or nearby, maybe wait in the parking lot of the grocery store in Agua Dulce...it's the closest main point I can think of...cell coverage is so poor up there.

I am from BC so cannot help with transport and have no crates to donate, but wanted to know if a donation via paypal would help in this situation? I'm not flush with cash, but can send a little your way if it would help? Let me know.

According to their facebook site it looks like the fire has passed them by for the most part. Still a very dangerous situation but it looks like they are going to be okay!

Villalobos Rescue Center: What a night. Everything is burning away from Villalobos but that damn fire is threatening other homes and ranches, so please keep those good thoughts going for everyone in it's path. All the dogs and wolves who were evacuated yesterday were resettled about midnight...I'll have a real update this morning.
