  1. While you were watching the action from Windsor and Ventura, you were standing across the street from my house.

    Scary stuff. I’ve got packed bags, if necessary.

  2. Wow, great photos. I stood on the north face of my balcony and watched the fire through binoculars last night. Against the night sky it resembled solar flares.

  3. I had no idea the fire was above La Vina Thursday night. I’ve been watching from JPL the last two evenings. Actually I’m confused as to where the fire is and has been. Is the fire station still standing? the teepee?, Brown Mountain junction, Echo mountain?

    Like the photo with the guys in orange. Seems appropriate

  4. You should have seen all the people out at midnight, taking it in. The streets were lined with cars and trucks and people with cameras.

    It isn’t close to Echo at this time PA.

  5. What is left standing.

    Here is my thought.

    Brown Mt Junction – gone last night.

    El Prieto – gone this morning

    Millard – Could have gone towards 5pm – they were defending it with air, but a lot has happened since 4pm.

    My thought is Sunset Ridge is likely gone now with it working onto Mt. Lowe as we speak.
