No pictures or solid info at the moment but Wil just called me saying he’s stuck in traffic (and I could hear sirens around him) because of a (what appears to be) massive fire in Griffith Park that he said seems to be headed right to the Observatory. Local news sites don’t have any info on it at the moment, but I’ll post again as soon as I know more.
Update: CBS2 has a live chopper cam of the fire. They aren’t saying much but you can clearly see there are several fires, at least one that looks to be right next to the Observatory, and lots of firefighters on it. From my house in Silver Lake I can hear all kinds of sirens rushing past now too. Mack just posted a photo as well.
