California fires: Live streams, links and online coverage

Updating: With over a quarter-million people asked to evacuate as flames approach, San Diego’s CBS8.com has blown out its home page with critical resources and a blog. 10News.com and NBCSanDiego are streaming live coverage. SignonSanDiego.com, powered by the Union-Tribune, is webcasting wall-to-wall on its new online radio station (although it’s a little light on information and too cheery given the size of this story.) LATimes.com is updating a cool Google map with information on the location and size of the many fires. Most of the LA stations are also streaming live coverage: KNBC.com, CBS2.com, ABC7.com, MyFoxLA.com and KTLA.com. Adam Housley is blogging behind the scenes photos and video on FoxNews.com.

The LAFD is sending out real-time alerts via Twitter. SignOnSanDiego has a fire blog, but it keeps crashing (lesson learned here: make sure your host can handle a real breaking news blog). Your best audio coverage will come from KNX, live stream here. The San Diego blog Cat Dirt Sez is doing a great job blogging the fire.

Any other standouts worth mentioning? Please leave in comments and we’ll add…
