Los Angeles Fire and Air Traffic Control, Cellphone Service

There are no reports of problems with air traffic control operations in Los Angeles due to that big fire raging in the San Gabriel Mountains, but a look at the map shows some potential for problems if that fire keeps growing.

The FAA Air Route Traffic Control Center for air traffic in southern and central California, including the Los Angeles area, is in Palmdale, Calif. See map.

More imminent is the potential for a disruption of cellphone service in the area because cellular towers are located on Mt. Wilson, which is right in the path of the fire.
