Wild fires racing through the Santa Monica Mountains is part of natures plan, regardless of what we do. It's a matter of thick vegetation drying to tinder under a baking sun and hot wind. Then, it requires nothing but a careless match or spark of any kind. This fire near the Pt. Magu area managed to make day into night across the whole bay area.
