Not sure where this is, but the lady said evac was NOT
mandatory. Note smoke behind building. Fire is encroaching.



Fireman said they were waiting for the fire
to come up the hill before trying to water.

It appears to be moving away.

Hunt on for those who set devastating Southern California fires

By ROBERT JABLON
Associated Press Writer

LOS ANGELES --
Even as crews battled Southern California's ferocious and fatal wildfires, investigators were trying to determine who set them.

"Over half of the fires in Southern California are of suspicious origin or definitely arson," said James Wright, chief of fire protection for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.

More than 13 fires have started since last week, with eight continuing to burn Wednesday.

No arrests had been made, but federal, state and local investigators said they were making progress. Several people have been detained in connection with the 28,000-acre Old Fire in San Bernardino County that has killed four elderly people who had heart attacks.

Does a Northwest wind mean "blowing in the northwest direction" or from the northwest direction?

Wind is always reported by the direction it is coming from. So a Northwest wind is blowing Southeast.

(The exception is when they speak of onshore or offshore winds. Those are the directions the winds are blowing, not where they are coming from.)

Some kind of wood-boring beetles. I've seen one or two of them in my backyard from time to time. They look for wood they can bore into. The things are large, black, with roundish bodies, and they make a loud buzzing sound when they fly. Here's a link to a University of California page that gives details about them.
