LA fire may destroy TV/radio/cell phone towers

Mount Wilson Observatory Director Hal McAlister said Monday in an ongoing blog that the U.S. Forest Service informed him that passage of the fire across Mount Wilson was imminent. The USFS also said firefighters would battle the blaze from the air rather than on the ground.


The wildfire in Los Angeles area is approaching Mt. Wilson, where many radio wave towers are concentrated. That means TV, radio and cellular phone connections in the nearby area may be lost.

So I learned the name "Mount Wilson" with this fire. I have to remember that.
