Malibu Fire Photos from Pepperdine University

Speaking of today's fires in Malibu, as Ashley and I watched the television this morning and the awful events happening there reminds us too much of the fire back in 1996. Based on that, I came across this collection of photos that I took back during that fire from the Pepperdine University Campus. They are a close-up view of what things may look like during today's fire.

Warning, these are scans and somewhat grainy -- they were taken back in 1996. These are not photos from today's October 21, 2007 fire.
