I also try to post wildfire info at www.socalfirejournal.com on the editors blog and also on Twitter, so follow along all summer long. Best wishes, Jeff Zimmerman, Zimmerman Media LLC
Currently there is a wind-driven fire running through the heavily-vegetated Colorado Riverbottom in the Needles area (or as locals not in Needles call it, "Needless").
Both SoCalFire and Southern-California-Fire-Notifications groups are giving good updates from Chris Nichols and here on the Hotlist is a thread to follow:
Last check the fire was running in the wind at over 100 acres and jumping road.
Yesterday there was a fire in the National City area in San Diego County.
Last month saw a bad wind-driven fire in Big Pine in the Owens Valley that destroyed homes.
The 2011 Fire Season is underway!
