  • Malibu Burning Again

    Dozens of homes have allready been destroyed.For some reason I don't see as many emergency services in place.No equipment in the air.It's been going since 3:00 A.M.I feel for those losing their homes.

    been watching all morning. the winds keep jumping the embers from place to place. the santa ana winds are suppose to slow down this afternoon.

    the 2 super scoopers are up and running along with lots of copters now.

    initial cause might be down power lines?

        Jared flies the 2/9 helicopter if you are watching those channels. I heard last night they were worried about a fire starting from the wind. It seems the power company needs to move their lines undergound or find a better way of securing them.

          35-homes and counting.

          Now they have brought in the giant DC-10 Jumbo Jet to drop retardants.

              Watching the news conference it appears they are at zero containment. They said the fire will burn until the wind slows and they can make some progress. As it turns out there were hundreds of fire fighters pre staged in the area waiting for when/if a fire started so they got an early jump on it.

                Tried to get back into the Mountains to get on some high ground to see where it's going.Too many agencies taking up the good access roads to the good view spots.Got within 2 miles,as a crow flies.

                Looks like it got past the firefighters and into a piece of open country old heavy fuel brush.Thick black smoke again.

                Saw multiple firefighting helicopters and the DC-10 fly over to dump water and retardant 2 miles away over the ridge I was behind.Lot of equipment up and running now.

                The thing is still being very unpredictable and hard to contain at this moment with the reasourses they have available.

                At 8:00 is when we could start seeing the air support.Their moving like bees at 11:00A.M.

                Good luck to the agencies working on this,doing all they can to help the people in this area.

                      Let us all pray for rain and maybe do a rain dance too.
