Packing up to leave in a wealthy enclave of Diamond Bar

November 16, 2008 | 12:25 pm

Cars are lined up along Diamond Bar Boulevard, where residents of expensive hillside tracts have been  told to evacuate.

Curtis Shen, 49, who owns a lingerie import business in downtown Los Angeles, was standing by his SUV waiting for his wife and daughter. They were packing some things to take from their $1.5-million home in the Country Estates development.

He said houses in the tract are as large as 20,000 square feet.

"A lot of rich businessmen live in there," he said.
