We've had a front-row view of the fire here in Paradise Cove and this morning, not a lick of flame visible from the Corral Canyon/Carbon Mesa area.
Winds, which started gusting at about 3 a.m., are now hot and steady but not too strong. If the pattern of the last few days holds, they'll kick up a bit more as dawn breaks. Weathercasters still talk of a gradual end tomorrow to the present wind pattern.
Roads in Malibu are quiet, road blocks still in effect.
