Malibu Brush Fire

Had to detour from PCH on our way to Point Mugu. Drove up Malibu Canyon Road. Picture was taken on November 23 around 9:00am from Malibu Canyon Road near Malibu Creek State Park looking south.

Re: Impressive!

It really was impressive and scary. A few minutes later there were some flames visible on the ridge but the fire never spread down the hillside.

Gee...

Is this the fire that merged with the other one? I think the smoke drifted into Utah.

Re: Gee...

I think that one was isolated to one of the Malibu canyons. Nevertheless, it destroyed several buildings.

Re: Amazing!

Thanks. These fires occur every year in many places all around the Southern California mountain ranges.

Re: Amazing!

Thanks. Yes, it was pretty bad last year, certainly one of the worst that I remember. Unfortunately, it will happen again this year, as it does every year. We only can hope that it won't be that bad.

Beauty and Terror

Fire always is both. You might consider attaching this to the "Fire on the Mountain" album: http://www.summitpost.org/album/199457/fire-on-the-mountain.html

Re: Looks like an erupting volcano!

Thanks. Yes, it was impressive, but it happens every year multiple times here in southern California. Cheers, Guido
