It spread way out into the lake? Really?

PS: Add video to this thing! Use Vobbo for video, much more interesting!

Though it appears to be and is correctly designated as a "lake", the blue section of the Topanga Incident image is largely (but not completely) dry lakebed filled with flammable vegetation.

There is *some* water in there, but the lake is not anywhere near the total designed capacity, which is designated by the blue outline.

I hope this helps. The vobbo service looks interesting, but we're not sure how we might use it at this time. Please do remember that our website and blog are non-funded and non-staffed endeavors!

Respectfully Yours in Safety and Service,
