Fire Blogging

33388287.jpg

Want to know what’s going on in Malibu and the rest of the scorched Southland? You could turn on the news, or you could do what you’re probably already doing — reading the blogs.

Here’s a roundup of the hot reads:

LAT: The Los Angeles Times is twittering fire news.

Here In Malibu: “Lots of tents going up at the command center at the Civic Center, presumably so firefighters can get some sleep. Water drops continue on lingering hot spots. Fire still burns in the Las Flores area, but is not on the move. Scanner talk says things are edging closer to being under control.”


Search Engine Land:
Former Orange County Register graphics reporter Danny Sullivan maps the areas of the fire using every tool available to a cartographer nerd.

California Fire News: It describes itself as a “casual” public interest news, but it’s got some good up-to-date evacuation information.

TV Cocktail: This site serves up the requisite celebrity-house-ablaze nonsense.
