Wildfire continues destruction in California
The Santa Ana winds push flames into Malibu, 14,000 residents forced to evacuate.
The long predicted fire sparked in the middle of the night and the harsh winds spread it quickly. 1,700 firefighters were used to combat the fire and six received minor injuries. Several special firefighting vehicles were also used against the flames. Fifteen helicopters and 15 planes were used. Helicopters used hoses and swimming pools and the Pacific Ocean to refill their water tanks and certain planes called the SuperScoopers did the same by flying low and dipping into the ocean.
Forty-nine homes were destroyed and another 27 were damaged in the fire. By Saturday close to half the evacuees were able to return to their homes and the fire had been close to half contained.
