The fire, which is feeding on brush and trees along Malibu ravines and hills, is being fueled by the hot dry Santa Ana desert winds. Helicopters, airplanes, DC-10 jumbo jets and 1,700 firefighters battled the flames and the racing winds.
Six firefighters reported minor injuries. Between 10,000 and 14,000 people were evacuated from their homes. Santa Ana winds played a prominent role in the October fires in Southern California. (Photo: AP via BBC)
