Current Event Cat of the Day: California Wildfire

Current Event Cat -  California Wildfire

Hundreds of Southern California residents were evacuated Thursday night after a massive wildfire ravaged California.

The wildfire, which has already burned through 8,000 acres, is heading toward the Pacific coast near Malibu. I think I speak for all of use when I say, “Save Mel Gibson!!”

The fast moving wildfire, fanned by strong winds, has only been 10 percent contained by firefighters. Planes dropped water and retardant to protect properties but the fire managed to damage 15 homes so far.

“We’re fighting it the old-fashioned down-and-dirty way with boots on the ground,” Ventura County Fire Department spokesman Bill Nash said “It’s hot, dangerous, dirty work.” Sexy.

Yesterday, a section of California’s Pacific Coast Highway was temporarily closed as hundreds of firefighters tried to control the fire, which was sparked during the Thursday morning rush hour.

Motorist Zeke Jaquez, who witnesses the blaze, said, “It’s unbelievable. It’s this huge monster.” Double sexy!

The wildfire burned 100 acres in less than an hour, finally reaching the Pacific coast late Thursday evening. Malibu residents beware! Weather officials warned of ongoing fire danger through Friday due to the hot, dry conditions and continuing gusty winds. Worst case, they can just go jump in the ocean.
