Apparently about 12:30 PM some folks working on the guy wires of the KBRT radio antennae managed to start a fire (Not clear how).
The wind is pushing it towards Avalon. Helicopters and two planes are fighting if. Fire trucks and crews are being loaded on hovercraft at Camp Pendleton to get there about 7:00
It sounds like it is geting under control. but a lot of nice stuff has been lost already
