Another bad fire just started in the Santa Anas...

Looks like it'll take out the Holy Jim Trail, possibly more. It's already jumped parts of the Main Divide Road.

In case it hasn't been posted in a fire thread recently, here's InciWeb, fire incident 'hub' of sorts.  Greatly improved from previous incarnation.

Damn shame about Holy Jim...it's a very beautiful canyon up there, very much like San Gabriels.

It might not be in Holy Jim after all. I've read that it is actually higher up Trabuco. This YT channel has some time-lapse video from Santiago Peak.

The cops say it was arson set by a guy who lives up there. When they came to arrest him, he got naked and brandished a sword.

There was a sword attack on Mt. Baldy back in 2008.  See here:
