These pictures were taken on November 16 2008 in Diamond Bar, CA. The city's posh gated community, called "The Country," was evacuated due to fire danger. Not for the first time, planes had to make fire retardant drops around Ridge Line Road. See more below.
Currently there are fires in Brea and Yorba Linda, among many other places. iReport has more photos of the fires.
Update: Excellent photos at Boston.com.
