A section of Angel Island caught fire Sunday night. There are tons of great pictures on Flickr.

I never watch TV on Sundays; otherwise I would’ve known about it (possibly; my potential for cluelessness is boundless).

Cal Fire’s page here. 75 percent contained at last report; The park is closed for now.

S.F. Chron story here. Lots more pictures here. It’s a major moonscape out there in some sections. Looks like it burned across the interior but spared the historic buildings.

I wonder: How else could this fire have started except errant sparks from somebody’s campfire? It was windy as as all get-out on Sunday and the terrain was super dry.

It’s a shame it had to hit Angel Island, it’s one of my favorite places in the Bay Area.
