Not Again!

From CNS

A wind-driven brushfire that started near the top of Corral Canyon overnight destroyed about 35 multimillion-dollar homes in the Malibu Bowl area today as the fire moved south and west.

The fire broke out about 3:30 a.m. near the top of Corral Canyon about 3:30 a.m., when winds out of the north and northeast were gusting up to about 60 mph.

Due to the high winds, spot fires started jumping well ahead of the main front, and soon several large homes along Newell Road in the Malibu Bowl area were in flames. Some homes in Latigo Canyon also burned.

Los Angeles County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky says nearly 10,000 Malibu residents have been evacuated from Corral Canyon to Point Dume.

Coastal evacuees should go north to Channel Island High School, he says. Inland and canyon residents should go to Agoura Hills High School.

County fire Chief Michael Freeman says firefighters are working to keep the fire from crossing Kanan Dume Road.

He says power lines have fallen due to the fire, but the cause is unknown.

Arson investigators are working near the origin of the fire -- off the paved road at Corral Canyon Road and Castro Mountainway.

I don't normally go in for this stuff but last month "psychic" Evelyn Paglini appeared on Coast to Coast AM recapping her accurate predictions of the major conflagrations we experienced last month that she made on the show earlier this year. At that time she "predicted" more fires in Southern California at the end of November, beginning of December - and she saw fires in the Hollywood Hills. Whether she's a quack or not, its not a bad idea to really adhere to those red flag days and other tips from the LAFD to prevent fires.

Although it appears that the Los Angeles County Fire Department is low in the county political pecking order. It's interesting to note that Michael Freeman, the fire chief, was the fourth of four speakers at the 10:30 press conference, following the county supervisor, the county sheriff, and the Malibu mayor. You'd think that a press conference about a fire would focus on someone who was connected to the fire department - just shows who has the power and who doesn't.

How many times do we have to spend millions of tax dollars for the same stupid people? If you are too stupid to clear all the trees and brush from around your house in the canyon why do we all have to pay. How many times have we heard about fires and houses lost in the canyons of Malibu? I felt some sympathy the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th ......time, but after countless stories about the fires in Malibu, it is painfully obvious these people need to take more responsibility for clearing tress and brush. If a fire-fighter dies protecting the same stupid people over and over and over again, the fireman’s family should sue the Malibu property owners for negligence and stupidity. The Malibu residents are as “Burro” as the “Blogging Burros” of this blog.

I could have predicted we would have more fires in Malibu. I now predict we will have mud-slides in Malibu when the rain comes. I must be psychic or a genius.

If we fined people for stupidity, there would be few left to wander the streets at all.

Which would be a good thing.

People should get an IQ test to operate a body, just like they need to drive a car. (Unless they're illegal, anyway, then they just jump behind the wheel and leave it in the hands of their saints.)

I propose adding a Special Department of Stupidity to all the pc depts the city has, and they can issue citations which result in 85 mins. in one of Baca's jails.

After all, we're already doing it for the High Visibility, Low Functioning, Spoiled Stupid, like Paris, Britney, Nicole, Gore's son...

What do you mean, you don't often get your tips from psychics?

How else would you claim to have "news before it happens?"

In fact, you're so uncannily accurate a producer friend of mine wants to get the Blogging Burros into his labs to hook you up to a brain monitor for his studies of the paranormal.

Or, maybe it was for his studies of the subnormal, I didn't catch it clearly.

This fire was caused because a group of people were partying in the Malibu bowl! They were seen by many people and arson investigators are very suspicious.

Also, arson is responsible for at least half of all the big fires!!! Every pyromaniac starts getting orgasmic when the Santa Anas begin...it's their big day!

The huge Arrowhead fire 4 years ago was definitely called ARSON!

The Santiago fire this year was ARSON!

Get rid of the illegals and we will have fewer fires!

Are people saying the ones who started the fire are illegals, or even Hispanics? Otherwise, you'll make anyone with legitimate arguments against the illegals look ridiculous.

8:56, your last sentence was real stupid. Where's your proof that illegals start more arson fires than American citizens?

You know the illegal alien mexicans and the midget mechista mayor are responsible for the fires in Malibu. The illegal alien mexicans and the midget mayor are jealous of the rich white people in Malibu.

Deport the pyrmanic mexicnas and the mechista mayor. Those damn mexicans don't know about the danger of fires, tequila and high winds.

Deport the fire starting illegal aliens immediately!!!!!

If we can deport the "midget mayor," who is a native born Californian and U.S. citizen, we can deport all these clowns who insist on calling for the deportation of American citizens!

Deporting anyone we don't agree with or whose skin color we detest is right at the heart of the warped American dream...er, nightmare, we're living through these days.
As Microsoft used to say in its Windows ads, "Where do you want to go today?"

2:41... Huh? Tequila starts brush fires? I thought tequila starts a fire in the belly, not in the brush!

Damn those illegal aliens, they are now starting fires in Malibu. Those illegal alien mexicans are always taking their huge extended families to the beach and parks to barbeque and drink corona beer. See waht happens when we open open Malibu for camping, more mexicans starting fires.

Deport the match-mad, midget, mexican, mechista mayor!!!

I don't even know the name of Al Gore's son. How could he possibly be taking up so much news time?

Gore's son got busted DUI driving wrong way on one of our L A freeways (why do all jerks have to come here even from DC for their crazy driving? Aren't the illegals without licenses enough?) And then he went into rehab

if you haven't heard of him as much as the female bimbettes, maybe it's because the press was easier on him as Gore's son -- after the news was reported, no one's bothered him.

You're right. I did read that. I would hardly consider him on the same level as Britney, Lindsay, Nicole or Paris. He BARELY got coverage.

out of respect to daddy. who's the big limo lib enviro hero. Politics breeds more respect than acting (except here in L A).

Besides, the guy wears his boxers and doesn't have low cut dresses, shop at Kitson or screw unemployed backup dancers and waiters. I don't think...

Oh it has nothing to do with Daddy. I doubt Al Gore controls the L.A. media.

You are right that it has to do with his not flashing his lack of underwear, not running over anyone's feet, only being in rehab for 83 hours, etc.

How boring to only get a DUI.

Well, it's unlikely we'll see a slew of guys flashing their lack of underwear, unless there's a new trend towards wearing kilts.

Guys are just so boring. Best they can do is throw a phone at someone, or smash in some paparazzo's face.

Much more clever to run over their feet or better yet, have them run each other over in their motorcycles.
