There is a fire burning on Catalina Island, off the coast of California. Some cruiseships stop here on the Baja cruises. The fire is close to their tiny town of Avalon, and residents are evacuating. I wonder if the cruise ships, will have to drop it off there itinerary? The pictures I saw looked awfully close to avalon, it didn't look like they'd be able to stop there in my opinion. The residents say there is lots of smoke and ash in the city. The military is involved in the fight, and helping transport firefighters to the island. This really is sad for me. Being a So. Cal native, I have been there several times. Let's not forget the georgia and florida fires. My heart goes out to all the people and poor animals, affected by all the fires.
