Folks from this board who have railfanned Cajon Pass will find it will look a bit different over the next many months - the Blue Cut fire is racing through the canyon stranding traffic on I-15 and shutting down rail service on both BNSF an UP. The fire seems to be burning everything in its path from Kenwood Road/Devore up through Swarthout Canyon, Kleghorn Road, to Route 138 and beyond. The McDonalds at the Hwy 138 exit on I-15 is one of the victims.
This article describes the damage pretty well: http://www.mercurynews.com/drought/ci_3 ... ut-control
