Sylmar Fire

It's hard to get perspective when an entire community gets wiped out. But that's what happened at the Oakridge Mobile Home Park in Sylmar, where more than 500 homes were lost during this morning's fire. Joel Sappell, a deputy to L.A. County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky, took a tour of the site this afternoon with top fire officials and shot some striking photos of destruction.

Check out more of his photos here.
