Listen to this note:

 

Javier Acosta, sergeant of the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office, reported in a press conference that around 50 families have been evacuated, there are no injuries, and that they work very closely with the Fire Department, in addition to having requested the help of all county agencies.

He highlighted that the first to arrive at the scene were the agents of the Sheriff's Office and they detected that the wind became a serious obstacle, since the debris from the fire that flew out reached the roofs and patios of the nearby houses, therefore who decided that evacuation was imminent and rapid.
