Thanks for all the great photos, videos and first hand accounts of the fires. Sorry we couldn't use everyone's stuff.

LOS FELIZ - LA Observed videographer Jacob Soboroff sends us the swell link to video he shot of the fire and reactions of top LA officials. "In the video I visit with Griffith Park-area City Councilman Tom LaBonge, LAPD Chief Bill Bratton, and LAFD Captain Carlos Calvillo. Also, see what it's like below a fire department chopper dumping tons of water." [CurbedWire Inbox/LA Observed]
LINCOLN HEIGHTS - Ha,ha. Despite our misunderstood hateful rants, we knew we'd win you over. "After your somewhat racist and poorly worded posting about the new East Los Angeles high school, I vowed I would never contribute to your site. But, everyone makes mistakes and I really enjoy most of the postings on the blog... so, I thought I would let you know about this new loft development [Lacy Studio Lofts] in Lincoln Heights. Doesn't look too bad. This is right near the old strip club, lacy street studios and the pound." [CurbedWire Inbox]
LA RIVER - We hear that the master plan for the LA River was adopted by the City Council today. If you're so inclined to read what's in store for the giant gutter to the sea, you can download the master plan here. [CurbedWire Eardrum]
