Just as we got a change in weather, with moisture coming in from the last of Hurrican Dean, fire broke out in the foothills above Altadena. I heard the helicopters over my house while in the shower, a friend called to say she could see smoke from Pasadena, and I hopped in the car to get some shots. I have posted a couple dozen shots of the fire on my flickr account, photodebbik.

Death Valley-5

Here’s one…

The Sheriff and other helicopters were on this fire that started near the old Cobb Estate at the top of Lake (not sure how it started) and quickly ran up the ridge to the power lines.
