remember the long burning coal fires in pennsylvania?
(http://community.livejournal.com/wtf_nature/87449.html)

well, something similar is happening in southern california, as was released by the news tonight.
basically, an oil field is heating up quickly with ground temperatures of over 800 degrees.
this is the only entry i can find on it right now:

and given that i live in santa clarita, i'm a bit nervous. :/




EDIT: apparently the area has exhibited such temperatures 5 times since 1987.
