Default Brush fire burns homes on the Palos Verdes Peninsula; blaze above La Canada Flintridg

Dry, hot winds fueled three major brush fires Thursday night, including one on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, seen above, that damaged several homes and a second blaze in La Canada Flintridge that was moving closer to homes.

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lano...for-worse.html

A lot of team members from the Lakers stay in the Palos Verdes Peninsula

C3101 requested 10 closest engines for Structure Protection in the area of wellington and 74 this AM. The Fire is approximately 1 mile east of Cranston and 10 miles east of Hemet in the San Jacinto Mountains and is currently at 1000 acres. Overnight, the fire grew in the north and northwest corners.
The Big Bear Hotshots completed a successful firing operation on the eastern flank of the fire, which is holding, preventing growth toward Idyllwild. Additionally, crews worked throughout the night with dozers and firing operations to reduce the risk to the homes along Highway 74.
The western flank of the fire is showing the most activity, burning in 11-year-old fuel type with a lot of dead component. Firefighters face the challenge of very rocky and steep terrain. Webcam link

La Cañada fire spreads in three directions, forcing more evacuations [Updated]
August 29, 2009 | 6:19 am
A fire in the La Cañada Flintridge area grew overnight, prompting more evacuations and leaving residents along foothill communities on edge.
The Station fire has burned more than 5,500 acres in various directions. One leg of the fire was moving southeast toward Altadena. No evacuations have yet been ordered in that community or the nearby Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Another leg was moving north, and officials said they are trying to prevent it from getting to the communications centers at Mt. Wilson. A western leg was moving toward Big Tujunga Canyon.
[Updated at 8 a.m.: The fire was 5% contained, 751 firefighters were on scene and 1,800 homes were threatened.]
