Photos from Griffith Park Fire – May 8, 2007

On May 8, 2007 a major wildfire erupted in Griffith Park that burned more than 817 acres (3.3 km), destroying the bird sanctuary, Dante’s View and Captain’s Roost, and forcing the evacuation of hundreds of people. The fire came right up to one of the largest playgrounds in Los Angeles, Shane’s Inspiration, and the Los Angeles Zoo, and threatened the Griffith Observatory, but left these areas intact.

These photos were taken in front of my apartment on Evans Ave in Franklin Hills, up the hill from Marshall High School.
