A month ago, L.A. had a spectacular wildfire that burned on the north side of the Hollywood sign. Today the city sees a fire burning near on the eastern side of the famous sign, near the zoo, closer to downtown L.A., in Griffith Park.
This picture from Chucks Chicken seems to me to get across the scariness of a big wildfire at night. As of midnight, it had burned 600 acres. Temps today hit 97 degrees downtown.
