Southern California Fires

Hosted by
More than 13,000 firefighters have been on the lines trying to combat at least ten fires that continue to burn tonight from Ventura to San Diego Counties. The death toll continues to rise and now includes a firefighter in San Diego County, where the historic mining town of Julian is in serious danger. Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear have been evacuated, and another blaze jumped Interstate 5 near Santa Clarita, threatening subdivisions. With the damage estimate already at almost $2 billion, the fires are still blazing. In a special one-hour edition of Which Way, L.A.?, we get the official overview and talk to fire fighters, shelter managers and some of the thousands of people who can-t go home.
