Malibu burning: updates

2:26 p.m.

Fire moving in both directions - just dropped to the hill above the Malibu Pier and is running uphill toward Saddle Peak.

800 firefighter now in Malibu. 1,000 more on the way. Firefighters' shift change has begun, with fresh companies relieving those who have been at work since before dawn.

1:41 p.m.

New site for fire info. Maps, updates, discussion forums, links.

1:05 p.m.

Area around Malibu Pier - which includes David Geffen's newly-remodeled Malibu Beach Inn, to say nothing of the pier's iconic neon sign, which finally works - now threatened as flames flow down the hillside.

12:41 p.m.

Plumes of smoke now seem to be moving westward. Scattered scanner talk speaks of wind shift.

12:30 p.m.

After a bit of a lull, the winds have kicked up again. Howling around the roof, slamming the house with gusts so strong, the long and lanky jacaranda in front is bent almost double.
