USGNN Original StoryAGA Members Send in Reports on the California Wildfires

Kerri Neidlinger, event coordinator for the Americas Glass Association (AGA) headquartered in Sacramento, Calif., has been receiving numerous reports of members impacted by the wildfires raging throughout Southern California.

A driver from Los Angeles-based Glasswerks reported that most of the shops on his route have closed as a result of the fires.

More than 60 percent of the employees of Mirror Shower and Glass in San Diego have been evacuated from their homes. Fortunately, none have lost their homes, as yet, Neidlinger says. The glass crew the company sent out yesterday could only work a half day as most of their customers are in danger from encroaching fires.

Reports to AGA share that Malibu Glass may have been one of many businesses lost in the fires.

AGA board member Al Lara, from San Marcos Glass, lives next to the Wild Animal Park and has been evacuated from his home.

Bob Moreno from Bob's Glass lives near Rancho Bernardo and has most likely been evacuated, Neidlinger says. She adds that Ramona, Calif., where Ken Slack of Kings Glass lives, was very hard hit by the fires.

"We are just making the best of it," Neidlinger says.
