Eagle Rock - Glendale Fire

Photo: Diane Edwardson, August 4, 2009. Water dropping helicopters are using Silver Lake Reservoir, flying over the Red Car Neighborhood en route to the Glendale - Eagle Rock Fire. The view from Corralitas Drive is similar to Paul Landacre's 1937 print, "Death of a Forest." (Click on photo to enlarge.)

Turn the volume all the way up to get the full teeth rattling effect of the helicopters as they fly over Corralitas. Video courtesy of the neighbor who alerted me to the photo op.

See photos of the actual water drop on The Eastsider LA.
