Register on fires
Here's a link to the Register's front page, which is constantly updating the Santiago/Modjeska fire, at around 19,000+ acres now and 12 structures burned. Modest structure losses by comparison to San Diego or Lake Arrowhead, but I think the Orange fire chief is right that OC didn't have access to planes in a timely fashion, so it could have been less destructive. Here's a link to the Register's editorial today, noting that it is believed to have been arson.
