Very sad. This is the backyard of where I grew up. I played and hiked and camped in these hills. I know many people who live there. I wish them all to be safe.

It reminds me of a time ~18 years ago when there was another fire in this area. My very best friend and family lost their home. It was tragic.

Quoted: A deadly wildfire destroyed more than four dozen homes as it blackened a wide swath of tinder-dry Southern California forest, forced thousands of residents to flee and burned dangerously close Monday to a vital mountaintop broadcasting complex.

Quoted: Fire crews set backfires and sprayed fire retardant at Mount Wilson, home to at least 20 television transmission towers, radio and cell phone antennas, and the century-old Mount Wilson Observatory. The observatory also houses two giant telescopes and several multimillion-dollar university programs. It is both a landmark for its historic discoveries and a thriving modern center for astronomy.
