Wind shift: updated

3:12 p.m.

Up at the barn now, where the temp is in the 90s, but still, utterly still. Planes and helicopters dip in and out of the canyons, where a trace of smoke hangs in the sky.

Kanan Road is open, and people with local ID allowed in and out.

No gas stations open in Malibu, so conserve what you've got.

2:04 p.m.

And now some good news: no injuries in Malibu thus far. The line of flames that crested the ridge earlier has receded.

1:27 p.m.

Upper Las Flores Canyon now in flames.

We can see lines of helicopters, which tank up at Pepperdine, vanish into the smoke as they dump water on the fire.


We feel it, see it, begin to gather on the bluff.

Wind shifts, fire shifts, and the first tiny tongue of flame appears.


Next entry: Monday 5:30 p.m.
