    Major fire in the Anaheim Hills area, Disneyland under smoke cloud - 3/11/07

    Ironically, no local broadcaster is showing live shots, most have sports commitments. Fox News Network is using Channel 11 (the local FOX broadcaster) live helicopter shots.

    At least one home has caught fire and there are mandatory evacuations.

    The smoke clouds are clearly visible here in Tustin, and from the 405 (was driving back from a SFMM event that was held early this morning before park opening).

    Disneyland is not in immediate fire danger, but the smoke will be a factor if you visit, and of course, no fireworks tonight due to the high winds.

    Well, so far it must be staying north, because I don't even smell it down here in Lake Forest.

    Thanks for the info!

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    The firs is basically at the 91 and the 24q1 and a bit south, and the wind is going basically west.

    I don't smell it here in Tustin, but there was a good 2-4 mile stretch on the 405 where you could really smell it (was driving down the 405 southbound about 40 minutes ago.... Photos to come...

    aFox News Network has just reported that a Car Fire on the 241 freeway (toll road) was the cause of the brush fire that has now burned over 500 acres..

    High winds, 94 degrees, little rain this winter have all added to this Fire Storm. It started about 6 hours ago.

    And they are saying that it was lucky that Daylight Savings started today, as the Firefighters have an extra hour to fight the fire before they go to defensive mode when the sun sets for the evening.

    Hopefully, this hillside inferno will be contained before leaving it's proximity...or jumping on the winds. Very little rest for the fire fighters. Wonder when we might receive word as to how the blaze started?

    Wouldn't want to be at Disneyland, today. Must be a feeling of ominous gloom beneath those dark clouds.

    Ride Warrior, up above Darkbeer posted that a car fire started the blaze.

    How sad for all involved...

    Just stepped outside, I can now smell smoke here in Tustin...

    Still no local channels covering the fire, most on sports, but some showing movies and game shows....

    FOX News Network is covering the event without commercials, and lots of live video.

    I hope the Fire Dept. can get this contained and stop asap. I swear it always seems like SoCal is burning somewhere.

    A second fire has just been reported in Corona, California.

    Santa Ana Winds and little rain in SoCal is not a good mixture.....

    Not good at all. Looks like emergency services will have their hands full today.

    Wonder if emergency support has been called in from other counties.

    Re: Major fire in the Anaheim Hills area, Disneyland under smoke cloud - 3/11/07

    Channel 4 in LA, KNBC is now broadcasting breaking news, interrupting another programing, everybody else (2, 5, 7, 9, 11 and 13) are still broadcasting other programming.

    And the new report is about 1,000 acres being burned.

    And there is a good chance the Corona fire and the Windy Ridge (aka Anaheim Hills) fire merging.

    The HIGH winds, 35 to 40 miles an hour is a major problem, winds from 10 to 15 can cause problems, so you can see the wind speed is a major issue.
