Duststorms in the Hollywood Hills, and now a FIRE in Beverly Hills around Coldwater Canyon. Three water dropping helicopters and 200 firefighters on scene according to Ron Meyers of the LAFD.
According to one report, a home has been damaged, possibly destroyed. Originally, Chyron graphics said this was a bursh fire… apparently its grown.
NBC 4 has an online video feed for the news junkies out there….
And in spite of the wind, a red flag warning hasn’t been called…
UPDATE (3:13pm): Just spoke with Zach from LAist – he said the house that may have been destroyed is right across from the Beverly Hills Fire Department. Yikes!
Additionally, there seems to be a rash of fires taking place around the LA area. Earlier, when he tried to call 311, Zach found that their line wasn’t working.
