This NBC 4 page has more facts about the fire in the Hollywood Hills. A few minutes ago they had a live video feed going, but it looks like they removed that link from the page.
When I came out of the subway at Universal City earlier and saw bits of ash falling from the smoky sky, it reminded me of being in NYC on September 11th. As I walked home, I was getting kind of nervous until a guy on the street explained what was going on. Before I talked to him, I kept trying to reassure myself with the thought, “It doesn’t smell like a building exploded.” I wish I didn’t know what that smells like.
Update: Cybele just pointed out that ABC 7 has a story up that quotes blogging.la’s favorite firefighting commenter, Brian Humphrey.
