So we talked about this out of control wildfires in Southern California burning dangerously close to packed neighborhoods there.
Those flames are forcing some residents to leave their homes while.
Others are doing what they can to protect the -- property meanwhile the firefighters.
They're using a break in the weather and trying contain the flames.
It's like they need a big break Adam -- live in LA what is happening there -- good morning.
Yet yet bill they got that break in -- those pictures last night so dramatic use those wildfires literally just exploding through some of the palm trees down -- the good news is.
Why you look at those pictures right now today as the sun comes up here in Southern California they've made some significant -- the winds died down this at some back fires overnight we're now told.
30% containment on this fire there's about 300 firefighters out there you can see some of that helicopters they came in and bomb them with water and also fire retardant.
But the good news once again as they only had damage to one home no homes totally lost.
And they have 30% containment which in firefighter terms I can tell you from covering hundreds of fires.
That means they have a very good handle on this and they probably haven't gotten the the ring around the -- if you will but it does show its -- out here right now.
Certainly as Riverside County so it's near Los Angeles what town is that -- Adam and also.
-- this is early in the year for brushfire I mean oftentimes -- I mean this does this tell you what is about to come when the fire season actually arrives.
It a couple of questions -- yes first of all it's -- -- consider flying into Los Angeles it would be kind the first flat area you you you go over about an hour or so to the east of downtown called inland empire.
Com it's actually it's -- the border case really played out for part of the time out there in the -- empire.
That's where this fire while the starting in the -- what it shows -- it was a good question about this fire already in February.
It shows that it is already tender dry out here it's extremely dry across California people are turning their sprinklers on.
All across the state it's it went from being a couple of good years of rain to another year where we've really had -- no measurable rain -- all least since 2013 began.
And what this does is it worries firefighters and others because we had that measurable rain for a couple of years where brush in and Bush's work were basically rebuilt and now they're extremely dry and tender and if we don't get rain before -- the fire season officially starts is usually June it could be a very long fire season but as we know bill from the last couple -- year's fire season in California is now pretty much a twelve year a twelve month thing.
He used to be just the summertime into the fall in the -- Anna winds and be kind of the end of it now it's pretty much twelve months out of the year.
-- Adam thank you.
We'll see how it goes and hopefully that break in the weather maintains and remains thank you don't.
