I got the same info, Newcombs is burned up, as is the little Mom & Pop place on the way to 9 mile, I'm feeling really bummed about this one......:(
My prayers are also with the residents & firefighters, God bless all of them. Aloha Alex

I don't think Newcomb's is gone ... somebody check satellite footage from Google Earth and get back to me.

My closest friend has been fighting that fire since day one so I'll get first-hand info when everything blows over.

Follow this link for a live camera on Mt. Wilson:

Oops (cut and pasted from the site): Note: The Mount Wilson webserver has gone down, most likely due to a backfire infiltration of a pull box containing telephone lines that bring us our T1 internet service. The will be no more updates from the Towercam, the last one being upoaded at 13:49:06.

Here's the fire perimeter from GeoMAC.

Google wouldn't show any actual images for a while.

Looks pretty close.

According to the LA Times Angeles Crest Highway will be closed from La Canada (the bottom) to Islip Saddle (past the tunnels above Newcombs) for an indefinite period of time. The fire destroyed all the signage, guard rails and road lining; additionally, due to lack of foliage it can only be assumed that even moderate rainfall will result in landslides.

ACH may be open again, but if it happens in the next 5 years I'll be surprised. With the state's current budget issues I seriously doubt any type of timely actions will be taken.
