#BREAKINGNEWS Incredible images from Air7HD Tuesday morning. A brush fire erupted near the Mount Wilson Observatory, prompting an evacuation of the historic facility as the blaze charred heavy brush down the hillsides. The fire, which broke out shortly before 4am, burned along the hills above Altadena, Arcadia and Pasadena. The fire had charred approximately 26 acres. There was no containment. Firefighters said the blaze has the potential to grow up to 600 acres. Approximately 500 firefighters were battling the brush fire. They were aided by light winds and cool morning temperatures.

"Whoa!" An air tanker soars over a Riverside County hillside and looks like it's headed right toward residents during a drop on the 1,000-acre Blaine fire, burning between Riverside and Moreno Valley.

The Osborne Fire Finder is a type of alidade used by fire lookouts in order to find a directional bearing (azimuth) to smoke in order to alert fire crews to a wildland fire. The device is used by moving the sights until the observer can peek through the nearer sighting hole and view the cross hairs in the further sight aligned with the fire. The fire lookout notes the degrees on the graduated ring beneath the sight. Early Fire Finders were capable of a crude estimate of elevation based upon the level and elevation of the table, calculating distance and rough position of the fire by reference to any distinctive terrain features and by use of the scale shown on the map. However, in actual practice, fire distance and location were normally established using two or more Fire Finder-equipped towers, using the intersection method to fix the precise location of the fire. Dispatchers at a central facility used a compass rose to mark lines of position from each reporting tower onto a large map to quickly find where the reported bearings intersect. #ANFFLA #VetterMountain #FireLookout #SocalTravels #Brushfire #Wildfire #California #ModernHiker #abc7eyewitness
