    good summary, thanks. My parents live in La Canada, and I am a long way away. I have compiled a series of updating sources of information, including a tweetgrid, and twitpic grid as well as updating sat. maps and other information on my blog which has helped me a lot stay on top of what is going on. May help others too. http://gehr.info

    What is the best way to get info on this fire? I have family, in the Lake View Terrace/Sylmar area and they just called stating they might be seeing fire head their way.

    Here is a link to my companys website that we created as a public courtesy for people to better track the progress and extents of wildfires. We built this site because of the severe fires that burned all last summer up here near Redding. We are drawing data from a number of government sources and integrating it into one portal. It is very innovative. Firefighter people up here loved it last summer and now rely on it. The main differences between it and other maps displayed online for the public are that it is dynamic and interactive, and consistently very current.
    Click the link to the site and then click the Station link, the name given to the Angeles NF fire. It will take you to the fire automatically. Zoom and pan around as you wish. Change to map or terrain views (tab at upper right) to better see streets or terrain. Click on fire detection points (flames) to see the date and time fire was detected at any given location. You can see progress by comparing the dates and times of different detections. The satellites detect new fire locations when one passes over the area or about every 6 hours. The detections remain posted for 48 hours. Perimeters are mapped and revised as responsible fire agencies are able. All agency postings are updated to Wildfire Viewer hourly.
