Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Officials estimate that nearly 3,000 people from some 700 homes are under evacuation orders as a wildfire rages north of Los Angeles.
LA County Sheriff’s Lt. David Coleman said at a news conference Sunday that evacuees wouldn’t be returning home until at least Monday and possibly Tuesday.
Coleman says about 2,000 people and 500 homes were under evacuation orders in the community of Lake Elizabeth, and about 800 people from 200 homes were affected in Lake Hughes.

Nearly 3,000 people have been evacuated from settlements in the parched mountains north of Los Angeles as a rapidly growing fire destroyed at least six homes, damaged 15 others and threatened hundreds more.
The blaze had burned about 40sq m (103sq km) of very dry brush in the Angeles National Forest mountains and canyons, some of which has not burned since 1929. The fire was growing so fast, and the smoke was so thick, that it was difficult to gauge its size, the US Forest Service incident commander Norm Walker said.
