California Fire - Airstream in Peril

Diane Leipper sent me this site. It is coverage by the Los Angeles Times.

The highlight is not just the fire, but they recognize the Airstream in the picture.

Fire Watch: Full coverage

An Airstream trailer is dwarfed last Sunday by approaching flames in Carbon Canyon in Malibu. Several structures were burned that day by the fast-moving blaze, dubbed the Canyon fire. View more photos

PeeWee, this was from a year or two ago, whenever the last round of fires here occurred.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

That was from the Malibu fire, just about a year ago. I also remember seeing a picture of what was left of that trailer after the fire went through.

This is an amazing picture.

The Year was 2007

This picture was taken in 2007. The L.A. Times carries a photo gallery of fires on their website. This still is part of their fire stories.

The picture shows the ferocious power of a fire storm.

There was some question if the trailer pictured was Sean Penn's:

The link in that thread is now dead. I found this short video instead - Sean Penn Loses Trailer in Malibu Fire -

It was Sean Penn's and now when I look over in that direction I do not see one on the hill. Keeping you all up to date we still have a few in Malibu not just in the Rv park.
