Sirens like crazy near us on the 1000 block of Chino right now.

I was wondering the same thing, just saw it from the east side. Also heard a fire truck

I can see it from our place. Looks like they've knocked it down-- no more shooting plumes of fire. Agree it looks like Loma Alta--- closer to ocean than Arlington.

I just exited Hwy 101 at Carrillo roughly 5 minutes ago, and saw huge flames shooting up from the side of the hill to the south west of the Carrillo Street off ramp. It looks to be near the Miramonte Highlands area.

Three fires in one day, in a relatively linear area is arson. Hope they catch this person.

And this is the rainy season folks.... we got lucky. Move this to August and homes would go "poof"

Embers are reportly falling in the 400 Block of Loma Alta..Code 2 Medics are responding.

Good I'm glad they are on it somewhat I had heard earlier structures were involved..They are saying no evacucations..

 

 COMMENT 365923 agree helpful negative off topic

2013-01-21 06:15 PM

I know, this is really not cool. But I think it probably is 3 separate events and people, one accidental (the cigarette fire), and two probably intentional. Betting the last one is a copycat thing due to there being prior fires today in the news.

Ideas spread like... heh. Wildfire. Bad ideas more so.

Not hearing much right now about the fire did hear they need more resources as far as what they are I do not know..Sounds like it's pretty much knocked down of course they will be there awhile watching the area...If this was another warming fire? I could see things getting real serious soon..CHP is on scene.

Don't forget to look up at the moon and notice Jupiter next to it.

Jupiter is beautiful...Thanks for reminding us..

Anyone listening to the scanner right now please do not release dialog between officers over the scanner...Investigators on scene.

Was it a homeless person, a careless smoker or a flower peddler that started this one? Place your bets.

 

 COMMENT 365944P agree helpful negative off topic

2013-01-21 06:50 PM

935, the fire seems to be out, so why not enjoy the show of Jupiter and the moon?

 

 ROGER DODGER agree helpful negative off topic

2013-01-21 06:50 PM

Please release no information I will only say there is an investigation going on..Any more information is for the Fire/Police to release.

 

 COMMENT 365952 agree helpful negative off topic

2013-01-21 07:06 PM

Roger, I don't get it... What's the harm releasing what can be heard publicly over a scanner? It's not like cops don't know that you're listening...

 

 ROGER DODGER agree helpful negative off topic

2013-01-21 07:18 PM

I know that I don't want the possible suspect information released. I'd like to give the police and firemen a chance to catch the scum maggot scumbag whom possibly started the fire not warn them...At this point there are several possiblities. It might have not been started by a person at all..Everyone knows there was a fire the fire is out now..

 

 ROGER DODGER agree helpful negative off topic

Fire was 2 to 3 acres.

 

 COMMENT 365959P agree helpful negative off topic

What is up with all the fires today? The Biltmore fire, the Bluff fire, the Channel Drive fire, the Beach fire, and now this one. I am just glad we have such well trained firefighting units in our area.

 

 ROGER DODGER agree helpful negative off topic

2013-01-21 07:42 PM

Sometimes theres alot of fires, sometimes theres alot of accidents, sometimes theres murders but they call them suicides. Just the way it rolls sometimes I hope theres no more..

 

 COMMENT 365963P agree helpful negative off topic

2013-01-21 07:50 PM

365959 weren't the Biltmore/Channel Drive fire the same thing and beach/bluff fire a single fire also? I thought with this one its 3 not 5 fires (which is to many) I could be wrong but I think thats the number.

 

 COMMENT 365964P agree helpful negative off topic

2013-01-21 08:00 PM

I agree with Roger Dodger - Let the Police do their investigation and don't release any info yet.

 

 COMMENT 365973P agree helpful negative off topic

2013-01-21 08:30 PM

Thank you 931, it IS stunning.

And I wholly agree with you, Roger. You reported what is useful, let the investigators do their job. Thank you again.

and I might get deleted for this, but I'd post publicly if the site wasn't so nasty.

 

 COMMENT 365975 agree helpful negative off topic

973P, that's why I'm not a member.

 

 COMMENT 365978P agree helpful negative off topic

2013-01-21 08:44 PM

I don't find the site nasty at all. It is professionally run and the nanny does a good job keeping things more civil. Only thing I find occasionally nasty are individuals whom choose to post insulting comments now and then, but that certainly isn't the site's fault, now is it.

 

 COMMENT 365981 agree helpful negative off topic

2013-01-21 08:58 PM

They'll ask for the publics help in two weeks after they cant figure it out themselves, then Sanchez will blame it on the realignment.

 

 COMMENT 365983P agree helpful negative off topic

981.....or, perhaps it will be recorded as a "gang related" fire!

 

 COMMENT 365989P agree helpful negative off topic

2013-01-21 11:45 PM

973P here. I agree the site is very well-moderated. I pay because it's worth it. It's still gotten nasty. I have emailed EDitors about a few posts that I considered extremely bad; they are wonderfully responsive. I've clicked a few negative buttons. Do you read every thread, 978P? I do. (My OCD is another issue!) It gets nasty and I'm not the only one to complain about it. It is my problem. Anyone can speak. If I could only just read and not post.... I'm working on impulse control. I'll print this and tape it to my computer to remind me to shut up. That will definitely help.
Very sorry for the thread jack.

My shut up is broken and I don't want it fixed.

151P - That is a really strange "hobby" of yours, correcting posters. I find it creepy that you "like(s) to correct people, when they use poor grammar or misspell" and even creepier that you advertise it as one of your passions. I personally find it very snooty, unnecessary and usually just plain mean. Perhaps you could better spend your time at the public library teaching people to read. The more one reads, the better his or her writing naturally becomes.
