California burning

Full coverage of the wildfires, including maps, striking photos, and regular updates from Bruce Henderson at And Still I Persist.

UPDATE 6:20 p.m.: In comments, Ryan Anderson notes that people are being/have been evacuated (many to Qualcomm Stadium) – a reported 250,000 evacuees (at his blog link).
