GONE WITH THE WIND: LOS ANGELES BURNS

  • A dramatic 50-acre brush fire erupted Wednesday morning in the Sepulveda Pass area of Los Angeles
  • Commuters caught the fire on their cellphones as they carefully made their way to work on the I-405
  • Eventually the fire prompted mandatory evacuation orders and the complete closure of the freeway 
  • There were no reports of injuries, but flames were approaching several hillside homes amid 25 mph winds
  • The fire burned up the area near LA’s exclusive Bel Air neighborhood and the Getty Center for the arts
  • HBO halted production on Westworld, which films in the area, citing safety fears; CBS did the same for SWAT

 

Drivers on their way to work in Los Angeles were faced with terrifying scenes along a major freeway after the fifth California wildfire this week left the hillside next to their road ablaze.

The inferno – named the Skirball Fire – has consumed more than 50 acres of land and threatens LA’s exclusive Bel Air neighborhood, UCLA and the Getty Center for the arts alongside the I-405 freeway.

The freeway is now shut down as 125 firefighters and several helicopters attempt to get the blaze under control – but early-morning commuters managed to capture this stunning footage.

As they traveled gingerly passed the ferocious fire, their cars passed just feet away from the deadly – and ever-spreading – flames.

Several people captured the surreal moment on video and shared them on social media.

‘Not the typical morning commute…’ one driver tweeted dryly.

    Anyone calling these fires “wild fires” is either a full blown zombie or an accomplice to the crime. Get real. That’s a straight up insult to anyone that still has any brain cells that are still firing. This is nothing more than a continuation of the previous round of fires in California. There has not been any drought conditions since Trump took office and the state has quite literally been drenched. So are we going to hear the same old bullshit about climate change and severe drought or what is going to be the excuse now? We have had so much rain that the worlds tallest dam was in danger of failing as the emergency spillway was breached for the first time because the main spillway could not be run at full capacity due to catastrophic failure. So in a year that we have had more rain than the previous 5 or more years combined, why are we seeing the worst fire season in history? Why are cars with aluminum motors turning to liquid? Why are trees burning from the inside out? Now for the big question. Since all evidence points to high energy weapons being used to start these fires, how can you call them wild fires? When it gets proven that these fires were started by high tech energy weapons, there will be no other possible reason other than being deliberately set. Heads must roll! Agenda 21 can kiss my ass!

    I agree these fires are agenda 21 related. Also that road should have been closed. If not the fire itself putting ppl at risk, certainly the distraction of such a massive fire within eyesight is.
