FROM THIS EPISODE

The Griffith Observatory, the  Greek Theater, the LA Zoo and the Great Western Museum were among the features of Griffith Park threatened by a fire that won’t be fully contained until tomorrow - if all goes well. We discuss the future of the surviving wildlife and the immediate future in an early fire season after a winter of record low rainfall.

Main Topic The Griffith Park Fire

The Griffith Park fire in the Hollywood Hills burned 817 acres, the largest fire in Los Angeles since 1961. Fire officials say it may have been started by a 23-year old homeless man who fell asleep while smoking a cigarette,  and is now is being treated for second and third-degree burns. Fire officials say that the fire is now 50% contained and that full control could take another 24 hours.
