Breaking News on local fires

by FYI Monday, Oct. 22, 2007 at 4:43 PM

The following events are currently unfolding in the fire zones and going largely unreported by corporate media:

1. Forced evacuations by LA County Sheriffs: Homeowners are not being allowed to stay and defend their homes.

2. Much of Canyon Country is gridlocked with people fleeing the fire zones. Reports of fist fights at blocked intersections.

3. Fire fighters are unable to get to all the homes. Some homeowners in Canyon Country are watching their homes burn up with no fire fighters on scene to fight the fire. Homeowners are pleading with sheriffs to call fire fighters but the fire fighters are too few and too late for many homes to be saved.

4. Some of the fires in Malibu are confirmed arson. Witnesses report a car throwing liquid plastic bags out the window that burst into flames on ground impact. Other fires are of suspect origin.
