Fires still a threat in LA
OFFICIALS say a tree branch striking a power line ignited a wildfire that destroyed a dozen homes in a star-studded area of Los Angeles this week.
The Department of Water and Power said strong winds drove the branch into the line, causing it to arc and spark the fire. The fire that ignited near the J. Paul Getty Museum drove celebrities including LeBron James and Arnold Schwarzenegger from their homes. The fire destroyed 12 homes. About 10,000 people remain under evacuation orders with hot winds due to return.
