    Yeah, the HPWREN photos look way close like Holy Jim, not farther away Long Canyon.

    In my pic it looks like it started way down in the canyon, view was from west Ortega highway. I no longer have eyes in it. At least it seems surrounded somewhat by the Holy Jim fire, where not much new growth has happened since 2018.
    This will sure put a damper on that area opening up

    F$CK Again.

    Unfortunately, there is a lot of fuel still depending where the fire is. The Holy Jim side was almost untouched from the cabins to Main Divide in the last fire. It was the Trabuco side that saw the damage...

    I know. I did say "somewhat". Just trying to be optomistic!

    Judging by the hpwren cam, it’s on the little ridge just east of LHJ trail, above the falls, moving up toward main divide abd the holy fire perimeter. probably started at the falls.

    Sorry... Wasn't really directing the info at your comment. More for the people who aren't familiar with the area...

    :( Can't believe this is happening again.

    I hope they get it under control soon ... it looks like Saturday will be super windy. It does look like some rain on Friday though.

    Yeah, the more I look at the South cam, the more Holy jim falls looks like the ignition point. Way too many idiots go there.

    Started at the trailhead? This is why we can't have nice things. Literally, right at the cabin of the HJ fire chief. :(

    No worries. I also can’t believe this is happening again. Fingers crossed this moves toward the holy fire perimeter and not away!

    The KTLA copter had the best angle... You can see the top mile of the trail in flames.

    There's a little puff there about 6 seconds in on both views.
    Puts the start right about 9:23 ish.
