WE CAN SEE FIRE IN SEVERAL DIRECTIONS

TO A RELENTLESS AERIAL
ASSAULT BY WATER-DROPPING TANKERS
AND CHOPPERS
THE INCREDIBLY POWERFUL SANTA ANA
WINDS THIS REGION HAD
BRACED FOR CAME WITH A FURY OVERNIGHT,
PUSHING FLAMES UPHILL
SIDES AND FORCING THOUSANDS TO FLEE
THEIR HOMES.
NAMED THE EASY FIRE FOR THE STREET NEAR
WHERE IT BEGAN, IT HAS
PROVEN TO BE ANYTHING BUT EASY AS I
WITNESSED ALL DAY ON
THE FRONT LINES. THE WALL OF FLAMES
IGNITED JUST BEFORE
DAWN QUICKLY RACING THROUGH THE DRY HILLS
NEAR SIMI VALLEY ABOUT
AN HOUR NORTH WEST OF L.A.
I HAVE BEEN WATCHING
THIS BATTLE TO STOP THE FIRE FROM CROSSING
A RIDGE LINE
YOU CAN SEE ME MOVING AROUND
THE SANTA ANA WINDS
ARE VERY STRONG. THE FIRE HAS GROWN
LEAPS AND BOUNDS SINCE
IT BROKE OUT SOMETIME AROUND SIX THIS
MORNING.
THOSE DANGEROUS 40 TO 50-MILE-PER-HOUR WINDS
WHIPPING UPFAIRNADOS.
THE WINDS ARE GUSTING SO HIGH.
HOW BRITTLE THIS IS.
THE HUMIDITY PROBABLY IN THE SINGLE DIGITS
RIGHT NOW.
THIS IS FRESH FUEL AND THAT’S WHY THIS FIRE
IS MOVING SO QUICKLY
WE HAVE SEEN THREE WATER DROPS HERE FROM
THE AIR, AND YET THE
FLAMES ARE STILL, WE ARE ABOUT 20, 30 FEET
FROM US.
THE FIRE SCORCHING 1,600 ACRES,
THREATENING THOUSANDS
OF STRUCTURES. 800 FIREFIGHTERS IN A
RACE AGAINST TIME.
SO FAR ZERO PERCENT CONTAINMENT.
THIS THING IS ABOUT TO
JOURNAL THE ROAD RIGHT IN FRONT OF US
RIGHT IN FRONT OF US
FLAMES COMING WITHIN 50 FEET OF THE RONALD
REAGAN PRESIDENTIAL
LIBRARY. EMPLOYEES BRACING FOR
THE WORST, PROTECTING
PRECIOUS PIECES OF HISTORY INSIDE.
>>THE FIRE ACTUALLY
SURROUNDED THE LIBRARY 360 DEGREES, BUT THE

OUTSTANDING JOB. >>Reporter: BUT THE
DANGER ISN’T OVER.
THE ENTIRE FOOTPRINT OF THE FIRE IS UNDER
THREAT.

LIKE HOPEFULLY WE GET
LUCKY.
>>Reporter: THE EASY FIRE, AS IT’S CALLED,
ONE OF SEVERAL NEW

THE HILL FIRE IGNITED NEARBY.
>>THE SMOKE STARTED
COMING OUT. >>Reporter:
FIREFIGHTERS ARE
CONTINUING TO BATTLE THE GETTY FIRE ON THE
WEST SIDE OF L.A., NOW
27% CONTAINED. OFFICIALS RELEASING
VIDEO OF THE MOMENT
THEY BELIEVE FIRE IGNITED EARLY MONDAY
WHEN A TREE BRANCH
SNAPPED AND FELL INTO A POWERLINE.
AND IN NORTHERN
CALIFORNIA 300,000 REMAIN IN THE DARK
THEIR POWER SHUT OFF
BY UTILITY COMPANY PG&E.
>>THE DISRUPTION
OBVIOUSLY FOR MILLIONS OF PEOPLE IN NORTHERN
CALIFORNIA IS
UNPRECEDENTED AND UNACCEPTABLE AND THEY
ARE GOING TO HAVE TO
FIND A WAY TO COMPENSATE FOLKS.
>>Reporter: TONIGHT
THE DANGEROUS WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO
PERSIST AS
FIREFIGHTERS CONTINUE TO BATTLE BLAZES ON
BOTH ENDS OF THIS
STATE. THE DEVASTATING RETURN
OF THE SANTA ANA WINDS
HAS MADE THESE FIRES HERE SO DANGEROUS, SO
UNPREDICTABLE.
AN ARMY OF FIREFIGHTERS IS HAVING
TROUBLE JUST KEEPING
UP MIGUEL ALMAGUER IS ON
THE BATTLE LINE.
>>Reporter: TONIGHT THIS IS WHAT THE
BATTLE LOOKS LIKE ON
THE FRONT LINES. A RAGING BLOWTORCH
AN INFERNO NO
FIREFIGHTER OR HOMEOWNER CAN OUTRUN
AS THIS FIRE BURNED
ITS INCREDIBLY DANGEROUS WITH THE
WIND
IT’S GOING RIGHT UP THIS RIDGE HERE.
AS GUSTS APPROACH
HURRICANE FORCE TEARING THROUGH BOTH
ENDS OF CALIFORNIA,
CREWS ARE UP AGAINST A DOUBLE THREAT.
FLAMES AND THE WINDS
THAT FAN THEM SUDDENLY TURNING DAY TO NIGHT
THESE ARE THE
CONDITIONS FIREFIGHTERS FACE IN
THESE WIND-DRIVEN
FIRES. IT’S NOT JUST THE
FLAMES ON THE MOVE,
BUT THESE SMALL EMBERS WHICH COULD SPARK A
NEW FIRE A MILE AWAY
DEADLY CONDITIONS OUTSIDE LOS ANGELES AS
RESIDENTS SCRAMBLED TO
FLEE HILLSIDE COMMUNITIES WITH NO
TIME TO WASTE.
WE SAW THE TREACHEROUS CONDITIONS WITH
FIREFIGHTERS
AS THE WINDS HIT 60 MILES PER HOUR, IT’S
BLINDING OUT HERE.
LOOK AT HOW FAST THE FLAMES ARE MOVING.
THE POWERFUL WINDS,
KNOWN AS SANTA ANAS IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA,
ORIGINATE FROM DRY,
HIGH PRESSURE IN THE DESERT GAINING SPEED
WHILE RIPPING THROUGH
CHANNELS IN MOUNTAIN TERRAIN.
THIS IS WHAT THEY DO
AND THIS IS WHAT THEY SOUND LIKE
>>SOUNDS LIKE HELL
WAS BREAKING THROUGHS WILL
THINGS WERE COMING
APART. >>Reporter: AND IT
WAS.
FIREFIGHTERS ON THEIR HEELS PLAYING DEFENSE
AND LOSING GROUND.
>>SANTA ANA WINDS A BEAST OF ITS OWN
ALMOST AT ITS MERCY.
>>Reporter: IT’S THE MOST EXTREME WIND
EVENT IN THE LAST
DECADE, AND IT’S NOT OVER
CREWS ARE TRYING TO
HIT THIS FIRE FROM THE AIR, BUT THERE IS
LITTLE THEY CAN DO TO
SLOW IT BECAUSE THE WINDS ARE SO STRONG.
THEY CAN REACH UPWARDS
OF 80 MILES PER HOUR LATER ON TONIGHT
BUT THEY DID FIND
BREAKS IN THE WEATHER. THE AIR ATTACK HAS
BEEN A MAJOR ASSET ALL
DAY LONG, BUT IT CAN’T BEAT BACK ALL OF THE
FLAMES AS THEY
CONTINUE TO GROW CALIFORNIA IS UNDER
SIEGE.
NO MATCH FOR MOTHER NATURE’S WRATH
THE NEW REALITIES ON
THE FRONT LINES AS WIND-DRIVEN FIRES TAKE
AIM ACROSS THE STATE
AND LESTER, THOSE DANGEROUS WINDS, AS
YOU KNOW, PERSIST
TONIGHT MEANS THE THREAT WILL ALSO LOOM
HERE OVERNIGHT
WE SHOULD SAY NOT FAR FROM HERE FIREFIGHTERS
DID TRY TO TAKE A
STAND ON HIGHWAY 23, BUT THEY LOST THE
BATTLE
THE FLAMES ACTUALLY LEAPT OVER THAT
HIGHWAY, BUT THEY ARE
MAKING PROGRESS IN THAT AREA.
SOME GOOD NEWS
TONIGHT. LESTER.
>>YEAH, I KNOW THEY
WERE TRYING TO HOLD THAT LINE.
MIGUEL, THANKS
WE HAVE SEEN SEVERAL SMALLER FIRES BREAK
OUT THROUGHOUT THE
DAY, LIKELY IGNITED BY FLOATING WIND-DRIVEN
EMBERS
THAT’S WHY WE ARE ALL WEARING FLAME
RETARDANT CLOTHING
HERE IN THE FIRE ZONE. AND EVERYONE WANTS TO
KNOW HOW LONG THIS
EXTREME FIRE THREAT WILL LAST.
AL ROKER IS TRACKING
IT AL, WHAT ARE WE
LOOKING AT
>>LESTER, WHERE YOU ARE AND THROUGH
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
YOU CAN SEE THE WIND GUSTS ANYWHERE FROM 25
TO 35 MILES PER HOUR
AND THAT’S WHY WE STILL HAVE AN EXTREME
RISK, THE POTENTIAL
FOR RAPID FIRE SPREAD TODAY AND ON INTO
TOMORROW
THE STRONGEST WINDS THROUGH TOMORROW
AFTERNOON.
WE HAVE THAT EXTREME RED FLAG WARNING
CONTINUING, 19 MILLION
PEOPLE AT RISK WINDS UP TO 80 MILES
PER HOUR
FAST-MOVING FIRE A POSSIBILITY.
THE DANGEROUS WINDS
WILL CONTINUE THROUGH TOMORROW AFTERNOON,

ROOF SO U.S. AERIALIAL SURVEILLANCE COULD
FIND IT.
THE SPY WAS SECRETLY WORKING FOR KURDISH

TUNNEL, AND HOW MANY PEOPLE AND GUARDS WERE

REVENGE, HE SAYS,
AGAINST ISIS AND BAGHDADI HIMSELF
DO YOU THINK THIS
OPERATION WOULD HAVE BEEN POSSIBLE WITHOUT
THIS SOURCE?
NO, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN IMPOSSIBLE TO EXECUTE,
HE SAYS.
WE WOULD GET DAILY UPSTATES AND PASS THEM
ON TO AMERICAN FORCES.
THE U.S. MILITARY SAYS BAGHDADI’S REMAINS
WERE BURIED AT SEA
JUST LIKE OSAMA BIN LADEN.

DEMOCRATS TO ANSWER QUESTIONS BEHIND
CLOSED DOORS NEXT
WEEK IT’S NOT CLEAR IF

DOES HIS APPEARANCE COULD BE CRITICAL.
ACCORDING TO OTHER
WITNESSES, BOLTON REPEATEDLY RAISED
CONCERNS ABOUT RUDY
GIULIANI, THE PRESIDENT’S PERSONAL
ATTORNEY, AND HIS
INTERACTIONS WITH UKRAINE.
IT COMES AS WE ARE
LEARNING NEW REVELATIONS FROM A
COMBAT VETERAN WHO
WORKED ON THE NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL
DRAWING A DIRECT LINE
BETWEEN MILITARY AID TO UKRAINE AND THE
PRESIDENT’S PUSH FOR
POLITICAL HELP LIEUTENANT COLONEL
ALEXANDER VINDMAN
DESCRIBING THE MONEY AS CONTINGENT ON THE
INVESTIGATIONS INTO
THE PRESIDENT’S POLITICAL RIVALS
ACCORDING TO TWO
SOURCES FAMILIAR WITH VINDMAN’S CLOSED-DOOR
TESTIMONY.
VINDMAN ALSO TOLD LAWMAKERS HE TRIED TO
ADD BACK TO THE WHITE
HOUSE ROUGH TRANSCRIPT OF THE JULY CALL
BETWEEN PRESIDENT
TRUMP AND THE UKRAINIAN PRESIDENT
KEY OMITTED PHRASES

DID NOT ASCRIBE AN ULTERIOR MOTIVE TO THE

PROFESSIONALS IN THE ADMINISTRATION IN
FOREIGN POLICY WHO
WERE DEEPLY DISTURBED BY THE FACT THAT
PRESIDENT TRUMP
ALLOWED THE CREATION OF SORT OF THIS OTHER
GROUP, A PARALLEL
GROUP. >>Reporter: LATE
TONIGHT THE WHITE
HOUSE SAYS THE SUGGESTION VINDMAN
WANTED TO ADD WORDS TO
THE ROUGH TRANSCRIPT IS FALSE
WE ARE ALSO LEARNING
FROM JOHN BOLTON’S LAWYER THAT BOLTON IS
NOT WILLING TO APPEAR

KEEP IN MIND THOUGH,
HE COULD STILL BE SUBPOENAED
LESTER.

  • Klaitz John3:16 says:

    These fires are not from climate change but the begging of the birth pains that Jesus warns us about towards the end times. Repent and ask Jesus to forgive you and turn from your evil ways.

  • Too much people on this earth is all natures way of claiming back what was stolen from the first native tribes in thatarea god bless if there is a god haha tomoro is looking better and better

  • Lots of back burning would help someone should start a back burn in los Los Angeles or sandiago san fran . That will stop the fire in its path

  • We all are living – 'The New Normal, Reality ! California has been greatly effected . . . in the last 10 years. Other western states weather has been effected too – example . . Colorado and Utah. Although this 'Global Warming' phenomenon may be viewed by some as minimal . . . ex. President Trump – FAKE NEWS, the WORST, is yet to come . . . as the ice, of both North & South Poles liquify in the coming years. Just imagine . . . the Neitherlands and New York City (just an example) underwater. The worst, is yet to come. For those along the coast . . . gotta start planning ! 😱

  • Trump would order more fire but he is cornered by peaching dems i feel sad for the american stupid voters that voted trump.

  • Remember Tulsa Oklahoma remember rosewood and all the other numerous places you're burnt down and blew up. God is not playing with you people.

  • God bless you Lucy, you hang in there. i know it seems like a real struggle but if you stay strong in 10, 15 years form now you will look back and all will be well. your Children will do very well you are a super strong Woman.

  • The Credible Hulk says:

    I'm not going to feel sorry for somebody that has kids out of wedlock, period. I didn't do it. Marriage first, then kids. If you can't afford children, don't have them. It's not rocket science. Stop making your children suffer for your stupid choices, my fellow United States citizens.

  • Alex Trebek stop using your show to generate public compassion for yourself. Why dont you donate from your millions $$$$ to the cure instead??

  • One reason why so many homes are burning now is because people are building in the wildlands. There should be a building moratorium in these high risk fire zones. Where is SACRAMENTO? WAKE UP AND DO YOUR JOB.

  • Klaitz John3:16 says:

    Matthew 7:22-23 22)Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23)And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

  • This economy is obviously only working for the Rich how can anyone not see that! Why dose anyone even have to ask that kind of ridiculous question!? Its a know fact!

  • You want to report the current fire and are on the line, that hard hat isn't for carrying, we know who you are Miguel, put that hard hat on your head and keep it on!

  • Tmdamora Damora says:

    They saved the Reagan Library……screw the library….save the homes. The library is dedicated to a dead president while the living are suffering. People who are living are more important than a dead president.

  • with ALL the money WE have, all the rain and floods in the eastern US and all the wildfires in the west, WHY dont we build a pipeline, a WATER PIPELINE from east to west ??!,! they built the Alaska line !! think of ALL the lives, homes,resources etc. and MILLIONS if not BILLIONS of dollars it would save??!! I've been wondering this for YEARS ??!!

  • Global warming is here thanks in part to religion (vertical growth-uterus) or "have all the kids "god" will provide when tax payers bear the burden of poverty.

  • God bless the fire fighters that are risking their lives on the lines. I pray that they all make it through every single day and night. Send them your prayers, it's the least we can all do. The film of these fires made my heart race, I can't imagine what they are going through. God please help end these horrible fires A.S.A.P. And God bless the families and animals that are affected too. Thank you Lord.

  • Heads Up: Republicans are going to announce the name of the whistleblower tomorrow during the House vote to try to muddy the waters. They are going to claim he's a deep stater with ties to Biden and Obama. It's already happening among the conservative media circles who have released the name, which is against the law. But they don't care. Since when have laws stopped them? It's on twitter, but I won't say his name, but he's apparently a Millennial who was in the intelligence agencies and NSC.

  • Makes me sick to see cadet bone spurs placing a medal on a real hero. One he wouldn't "like" if they had been a POW! SMFH Our heroes deserve a better president to place a medal around their necks.

  • There is no more noble a profession than that of a teacher. Teachers should be among the best waged careers in public education. A smarter future for the survival of us is the best quality education for all people. That's the smartest thing this country could do. Knowledge wins the game.

  • Well it looks like California voted in another goofy governor. He said turning of the electricity was exceptionable, and he wants to compensate those that have no power. Will last year everyone wanted to sue the power company for causing a fire. Take your chose fire or no power. They just can't win against governors can they. What a miserable state California is,

  • 35k a year for our teachers? is this how much the people that teaches our kids and do the biggest impact in our kids life get paid so little? is this how much they deserve?
    It breaks my heart to see that.

    That's what happens when Cali cigarette smokers throw their lit butts out of moving cars. California highways should put surveillance cameras along their state highways.

  • That Miguel reporter looks like he went to get his fire retardant clothes custom fitted. He looks like he's trying to be a model out there more than a reporter. It doesn't even make any sense they took his blown up remains and gave him a burial at Sea? Is he really dead? I wonder how many dog training hours it took to train trump how to clip that metal around their necks? I would have been afraid his dumb azzzzzz would have killed me.

    Reporting from the virtual middle of a firestorm as the opening statement is the most obtuse, idiotic, click bait BS I have ever heard. What else do you expect from this 2-bit outfit?

    Build pipelines from the pacific to these dry brittle areas. Ocean water is eternal. It is ridiculous that these areas have to be so bone dry that a spark from a dirt bike can set off an inferno. Trickle down Reaganomics continues to plague this country. The days of Honey I,m home are long over. Thank You! Reagan library.

    Fires, Earthquakes, Floods, Tornados, Hurricanes, Record-Breaking High and Low Temperatures … This is Mother Earth's means to show vengeance for abusing her.

    It is time to repent … Carpool, Recycle, Use Solar, Plant Greens – NOW!

  • I've never made over $24,000 a year but I've never considered myself a poor. People want everything, new cars, iphones, computers, Cable TV, stuff they really don't need but they think it's only their right to have.

    The events in California are a DIRECT result of what happens when phony leadership makes decisions based upon emotions rather than the intellect. California has been cursed, and curses are very, very, very real!!! You don't believe me—I don't care!

    why doesnt trump send in national guard, get international volunteers, he doesnt seem to be to concerned, as a president usually is. i think trump just lost california vote, dont even campaign there trump, will be so much anger. not criticising, but there must be a way to prevent these fires, even before they happen, maybe should invent giant forrest sprinker, to water the forrest etc regularily, just like you water plants. cost money, but could save lives.
