Barbara Streisand's coif slowly, tragically melting
A wildfire raging in Malibu, California, has caused a "number" of buildings to be destroyed and thousands of residents to be evacuated. The BBC is (bewilderingly) reporting that the homes of Mel Gibson and Barbara streisand are in the area. The fire is believed to have been caused by dry tinder and a power cable blown over by strong winds.
The San Jose Mercury News reports that the situation is still not resolved. "This fire is zero percent contained, which means we're at the mercy of the wind," Malibu Mayor Pamela Conley Ulich said. In addition, one resident was killed and four firemen were injured as the blaze spread across the hills. "There could be homes threatened by the end of the day Sunday if the fire continues to push to the south and southwest," U.S. Forest Service spokesman Stanton Florea said in a radio interview.
