Wildfire Today said:Some of them did not have enough fuel in their vehicles to get very far and became stranded on the side of the road. Authorities arranged for a fuel tanker truck to patrol the highways to assist the motorists.
With the intensity of the fires and how quickly things changed I'm not sure anything would've made a difference. They were saying that there was no concern at 2pm, then the wind changed and by 4pm a full evac had been ordered.it seems there is a need for a fire suppression system
