The Sacramento Bee posted some great photos from their coverage of the wildfires raging near Los Angeles. The above is by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images.
Via Ron Wood, who also pointed out these time lapse vids of the fires.
UPDATE: The fire has now been declared an arson, and thus a homicide. From this Reuters article:
The so-called Station Fire has killed two firefighters, destroyed 64 homes and torched an area the size of Chicago in the nine days it has roared across the rugged San Gabriel Mountains overlooking Los Angeles.
