More pictures

Forgive the TV pictures, but I'm not getting any closer than this to the fires. I'm angry...I'm really, really there are 2 fires that have been announced that were deliberately set. Irvine and Foothill Ranch. Bless those who are fighting this..and those who will be forever affected by this. What a waste. From Santa Barabara to San Diego.
See the top of the left picture? That's a house on fire. See the smoke and how close it is to the houses? See how close those houses are to each other?
check out this DC-10...converted from an American Airlines passenger what it can do NOW!
They finally can fly up into the canyons-it was too windy earlier today for them to fly. Between the Santa Ana fires and the winds that the fires generate by themselves, once a plane is loaded with water, it can be too heavy to fly in unstable winds. They fly close to the ground where the winds are the strongest and the wildest. TV cameras fly higher so they are out of some of the strongest winds, even though they're still battling the winds.

I'm counting 9 fires on this map. The winds are kicking up for the evening. That's not a good sign.
Correction, there are 17 fires in California tonight.
She just said...Foothill Ranch was deliberately set!!!!!!! They have found 3 areas that were set on fire!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As always, if you click on the pictures, you can see them larger.
