BREAKING NEWS- More Malibu Wildfires
BREAKING NEWS- It hasn't even been a month since the last wildfires ripped through Malibu, and now another round of fires is burning through the ocean front California hot spot.
This round of fires evidently began early Saturday morning near Malibu Lake. Over 1,600 acres have already burned. Fires have destroyed more than 20 homes, but so far no injuries have been reported.
The blaze, fueled by dry Santa Ana winds, began shortly before 3:30 a.m. PST near Malibu Lake on state park land and had scorched more than 400 acres, said Los Angeles County fire Capt. Mike Brown.
The following counties were under mandatory evacuation Saturday morning: Corral Canyon, Puerco Canyon, Latigo Canyon, Sycamore Canyon / Escondido Canyon, Winding Way, Ramirez Canyon and points west to Kanan Road including Point Dume and Paradise Cove.
The American Red Cross has set up at Agoura High SChool. Meanwhile, the city is discouraging evacuees from going to Zuma Beach as the smoke in the area is just too heavy.
Hundreds of firefighters were placed on watch this weekend as Santa Ana wind returned to Southern California. Gusts up to 60 mph were reported in some mountain passes overnight.
