SYRACUSE (WSYR-TV) - Elias Alba has only been able to watch from thousands of miles away as wildfires threaten his family's Sonoma, California home.
"It's really still happening," Alba, a Syracuse University junior, said. "There's houses and buildings that are still burning down and it's frightening."
Alba's family evacuated from their home Saturday morning after he spent the last several days asking them over text message to leave.
They've only lived in the house for less than a year.
"From what my mom's been telling me, places that I've walked around [in the neighborhood] are probably on fire right now," Alba said.
Alba is expected to next return home during SU's winter break.
