Lowe's rep tells us as of last night, Rob's home was still standing, but he had to move his family out.

No word on the condition of any nannies.

I should feel compassion for Lowe, Oprah and the others....but it seems like California is fire-prone and why would anyone buy/build a house in a fire district?

To #1 Sally in Cicago, it is a sad fact that many people do choose to live in the canyons of Califronia. When you make that choice you have to live with wild fires, mudslides etc. I lived in Santa Barbara for many years and worked in Montecito for a time. The area is beautiful but terribly over grown with plant life that eventually does go up in flames. I always worried about getting out of the area in case of fire as most of the roads are 2 lane windy roads. I lived in Santa Barbara during the Painted Cave fire and it took less than 15 minutes for the winds to push the fire down the mountain to the 101 freeway which the fire jumped. People pay a high price for living in California...fires, mudslides, earthquakes but it is like any other place...there is always some kind of danger no matter what.

To #1 Sally in Chicago, using your logic, then people shouldn't build homes in the hurricane areas, or earthquake prone states, or the Florida coast, or countless other area where natural disasters hit. I think that would include Chicago because no one is immune to what nature can unfold.

HA! Fire district. I love it when people who do not live in California chime in with their two cents' worth about how we should live our lives. First we all need to move out of the fire districts. Obviously! Which is the whole flipping state, of course. All you sick haters who mock anyone who evacuates for a fire, this is for you: I hope it never happens to you. As much as you are losers, I hope it never happens to you. Fire doesn't discriminate. If you haven't lived through a California fire or any fire, then you're very blessed.

Actually, there are more structural fires in Chicago during winter than in the whole state of California.

I have no sympathy for these gluttons of wealth.
Millions of people live on the sidewalks in the USA.
N'Orleans still needs help.
