The fire is moving, everyone out! I just heard this on my scanner as I'm watching the fire blow up in spots climbing up the Hillside, choppers are going in for the kill.

Roger it's 700 Picacho 93108, but when Ellen mentioned the fire on her show she only said her and Portia evacuated so I guess she didn't take Rob with her :>)

I totally appreciate the efforts of CalTrans and the clean-up of the tanker truck spill. However, closing 101 north for the environmental protocol (if that is indeed what they're doing) is absurd during of time of emergency evacuation. Clear wreck to the side, deal with what they can, allowing motorists through as well. Please !

Caltrans is repaving it because they have to, our agencies know what they have to do and complaining when you don't know any facts adds nothing to the discussion.

For MODIS, "Each active fire location represents the center of a 1 km pixel that is flagged by the algorithm as containing a fire within the pixel."
From http://viirsfire.geog.umd.edu/pages/viirsvsmodis.php
Great map data. Just keep in mind what those spots mean.
