Corral Fire, Malibu Neighborhoods In Flames

A Santa Ana Wind driven fire started at 3:30 am Saturday morning has consumed dozens of homes in the Corral Canyon area of Malibu. Winds should abate by this afternoon but until then fire crews are helpless against the 70 MPH winds.
The State had deployed hundreds of firefighters in Southern California in anticipation of the strong winds.
With these winds they are spectators for the most part. There is only so much that can be done against such winds.
