It’s all over the news and I’m certainly not an authority on the current wildfires that have consumed more than 60,000 acres (about 15,000 of them in the last 24 hours) just east of Los Angeles.
More than 2,000 firefighters are engaged in fighting the fire which has taken houses but thankfully no lives and seems to be staying away from Big Bear.
There are some great satellite photos being posted by the Earth Observatory of NASA that clearly show the fires over the last few days get closer and closer.
The prognosis doesn’t sound good as there’s a heat advisory for this weekend, so think of those thousands of firefighters this weekend when you’re complaining about the 100+ temps. Luckily they’re predicting cooler temps and some moisture early next week.
UPDATE: Yup, they’ve merged.
