Southern California, October 28, 2007 — All Jumper- Maksimist churches (sobranie) in Southern California are safe. San Marcos prayer building (church) was closest to fires, but was not in the evacuation area.

Those living in north San Diego County — Escondido, Rancho Santa Fe, Romona (see #14 on map) — had to evacuate. 80% of all buildings destroyed were in San Diego County. Find map and addresses by zip code of destroyed buildings on this Interactive fire map.

The first fire in San Marcos started on Monday October 22 at, or near, California State University San Marcos (formerly the Prohoroff Poultry Farm*) about 1/2 mile from the church. Many families of Molokan- Jumper descent from Mexico live near the church on Shubin Lane and Bolotin Lane.

* At it's peak, the Prohoroff Poultry Farm had about 2 million chickens on 557 acres [0.87 sq. mile], laying 7 million eggs annually [1600 dozen/day], selling 11 million pounds of manure each month, and was one of the largest egg ranches in the world. Terenty Prohoroff moved to San Marcos in 1924 from Arizona and started this business in 1945 with 250 chickens. Terenty died in 1976. His sons John, Morris, and Jacob ran the farm. When the business failed they sold to 3 land developers, who sold 304 acres [55%] to the state to build a university   CSUSM founded in 1989.  — Poultry production profited plucky Prohoroffs, by Vincent Nicholas Rossi, San Diego Union-Tribune.
