This is the "After" picture of a fire that started at 1 am this morning in the hills that the 405 passes through (known as the Sepulveda pass). Those little yellow things that are crawling all over the hillside are firefighters!
Now for the "Before" picture (taken by news people i assume, as i was safely sleeping at home when the fire started):
Um, gulp. Yes, that is the very same hillside i drove past this morning... pretty scary stuff. Thank goodness we have amazing firefighters who were able to put the fire out by the time i had to commute. They even managed to keep the fire contained so that no homes or business were damaged, and even more importantly, no people were hurt. My hats off to you LAFD!
