Automatic video camera photographed the Station fire

During the Station fire near Los Angeles last year, a remote wildlife video camera photographed the fire as it burned around the camera and consumed the vegetation in a canyon. It also photographed a mountain lion before the fire, and some bears after the fire passed through. Very cool.

I believe the fire video was captured on August 28.

  1. Very well done, The cycles of nature in action.

    It would be nice to have portable heat proof cameras and other recording devices to pre-position in front of a fire so fire behavior and other data can be collected for research. Just like the things they put down in front of tornados. They would give you some real time information…

  2. Cool video images (could use the brief segment where it captures the classic “embers rolling downhill” that we teach in 130/190), but definitely leaning torwards the “fire destroys” wildlife commentary…..
