Loma Prieta Volcano?

Tonight I found this time-lapse footage on Twitter. This is the Loma Fire raging yesterday atop Loma Prieta Mountain on the spine of the Santa Cruz Mountains. This is the latest serious wildfire in California and broke out amidst the ongoing heatwave which is happening amidst the ongoing now-five-year drought. The fire seems to have begun near unto or adjacent to the communication equipment complex atop the mountain. As you may recall, the 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake was centered below this mountain and made that name rather infamous.
