The view from the empty lot by my place. That mountain is a protected wilderness area, and my second favorite hike of all time. I grew up in the neighborhoods below it, and lived in its shadow growing up. In the first pic, you can see the peak itself above the smoke. I love that mountain, and have a very intimate knowledge of it. As of now, the winds are blowing strongly to the north, fanning those flames right towards a forest hundreds of acres in size that's just beautiful. The trail that accesses the peak is literally right in the flames - so much that hike I had planned next week!
Below that trail is a popular running trail, where they think the fire started. Neighborhoods are being evacuated. I hope they castrate who ever caused this!
Here's a picture I took up on the mountain itself looking at the peak. I hope they put it out before this wilderness is all burned:
