Aerial Views of the Holiday Fire Burn Area
By John Wiley
I greatly appreciated Robert Bernstein's pix of the Holiday Fire area on Edhat.
Here's a different angle from the air. The two perspectives help to clarify for the rest of us, the heartbreaking situation residents there are facing. This pic is from the southwest, cut into two pieces to show more detail. The upper area roughly corresponds with the gEarth 3D satellite view at goo.gl/maps/FNbHxSAyucK2 and the lower area with goo.gl/maps/jjJcDW1p1UH2. I have a couple of other pix, and could post one along with higher resolution versions of this one if you're interested. They're sobering reminders of how fast fire can move, and the importance of defensible space coupled with prompt evacuation.
