lost in the CA Wildfires? :(

I'm concerned about Rancho Santa Fe in northern San Diego county. The trees in that area is almost all Eucalyptus, which burn like hell. There is a couple of Neutra's there, as well as some nice new stuff by Wally Cunningham. We will have to wait until the smoke clears, I guess.

Information will soon be forthcoming on

Boy, this thing is big!

It will likely be a few weeks before we can drive through all of the neighborhoods and check addresses. I hope to compile a list of those structures threatened and destroyed and publish on my site.
You are all correct - Rancho Santa Fe, since it was designed by Lillian Rice, has hosted an impressive inventory of significant structures. The list of architects and building designers in the many square acres of RSF is fairly long - not to mention the many other neighborhoods that have suffered damage, evacuations and loss of life.
