Brush fire burning in mountains above Azusa Ca...

God Bless the people in the area.
I really do hope it was not arson.
Economic Warfare: Jihad by forest fire
At the Link- It is noted that the fire is burning in nearly the same place, as one that broke out 2 weeks ago. Seems a little odd to me.
lightning allegedlu never strikes twice....in the same spot...
what was the forensic conclusion as to the cause of the previous fire?
Didn’t take long for those in Texas hoping, wishing, suggesting this is some kind terrorism....Or deserved disaster...
I cant find anything about the conclusion as to the cause of the previous fire using azuza San Garbriel....or any other related terms ...
given the location I doubt that it was caused by the residents of a “homeless encampment”
I live in Northern CA btw
Understand....just beware of the AH’s...
Just drove by there about a half hour ago on way home from work. Was surprised to see the extent of the destruction. When I lived in the adjacent Bradbury area my dog and I used to go there for runs and walks along the SG river. Nice quiet area .... God Speed to those that that are in danger of losing their home sweet homes.
The latest on the local news is that the fire has grown to 40 Acres , but that the winds have died down.
This is good because I think the water dropping helicopters and planes can't fly at night.
They also mentioned that the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
I know the area. When I was 17 I made the run from Crystal Lake to Azusa in 40 minutes, and that was stopping at the SG River bridge to allow my passenger to have a cigarette.
(I was on a motorcycle.)
NCA is nice....agree..But it’ll be destroyed if allowed...Like so many other places.....Some in these parts think a paved landscape with a strip malls every block for 150 blocks is somehow a neat or cool...As they decorate McDonald’s franchises as attractive and trendy upscale cool places with palm trees n’ loose loud women.
Come on. Who buys this cheet? I see nasty cowflop.
The weather is supposed to be much cooler tomorrow. That should help. Prayers that they get it out quickly.
I remember going camping/off roading with friends in Azusa canyon-but that was years ago. I bet they don’t let anyone off road there now.
.... Holy cow 40 minutes .... darn good time ..... heck .... takes me that long to hit the area on my 10 speed LOL ... bet you ran during the cool season otherwise you woulda fried. I was floored when I saw how low that fire was. Where I used to live there are a lot of horse owners and even breeders in the area. At any sign of fire within a five or so mile radius a lot of them would go to all of the trouble to load critters and prepare to flee as a precaution. Major headache but fires can move very fast when it’s dry and the wind changes direction.
The Muzzies do it in Israel.
Thanks for posting. My eyes have been burning all evening, especially when we took the dogs out around 8 PM. This only happens if there’s a fire in the area and I hadn’t heard or seen anything. We must be downwind. I suspect tomorrow my car will be covered with a fine layer of ash.
Heard on the radio to wash it off ASAP b/c the ash is acidic and will ruin the paint.
Hope it’s put out soon...and that people, animals, homes are OK...
It IS fire season in California.
what is the status of the fire this morning? Son lives in Glendora, daughter in La Verne.
We are west in Eagle Rock, up against the hills.
Evacuation orders have been lifted. Fire is now approx. 200 acres. 5% contained. Water dropping planes and helicopters will be flying as soon as sun is rising. Unfortunately some high winds are expected, but the temps are expected to be cooler- possible drizzle for tommorow morning.
Correction- ABC news just reported that evacuations are continuing? No homes are threatened at this time. Precautionary measure in case the winds change.
if its good enough for Israel..../s
that sort of “city planning” serves the NEEDS of the TV addicted low info types..
wever got a lot of so called “Open Space” including many many miles of opem fire trails....where Ive been known to ride my my electric bicycle.
being that Marin County is the birthplace of the mountain bike...those hills and trails will remain regardless of the need for new real estate...
I fully expect a major fire here before november!
as I understand it this morning....the airborne fire crews had to wait for sunrise to start flying again.
Thanks!! I showed your photo to the people I work with and everyone loved it.
This morning I could see a huge line of thick smoke along the foothills, looks like the fire is still burning. I took an Advil b/c I have a headache. I live along the foothills and it seems like no matter where the fire is, it settles in my area!!
Fire is still burning at this particular moment in time. It is approximately 250 acres. I live in La Verne and have family in Glendora; neither community is in danger right now (although we get a bit of smoke now and again). The fire has burned back into the mountains from Azusa and is not presently a danger to residents of Azusa other than air quality (and a little bit of fine flaky ash).
The fire’s been dubbed the Madre Fire, and you can see a map of its present burn area here: http://inciweb.org/incident/3737/
