Another picture from yesterday's brushfire

Just thought I'd share this one picture from yesterday's fire.  This photo was take as the helicopters battled the blaze as it moved along the ridge; I believe this was as close to nearby homes as the flames came, probably only a few hundred feet away.

Here's a link to some info about the fire, apparently 200 firefighters were working on the area until after 8pm last night. http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2010/08/santa-clarita-brush-fire.html

Another link from the LA Times says that the fire was started by a 14 year old smoking marijuana when he dropped his lighter in the brush.

  1. Amazing photo! Odd, too, that the shape of the water resembles the shape of the helicopter, like a white shadow....
