While we cough and weeze in our Woodland Hills firewatch center, and wake up to find ash on our car in Hollywood, the good news with the fires is that only one home has burned. There was also that abandoned rocket engine test facility that also burned to the ground. That can't be good.
Even celebrities have had to be evacuated from their hillside homes, including actor Shelley Berman of "Curb Your Enthusiasm." Actually, he's the only celebrity being reported.
As is said every year, its a good idea to clear the dead weeds and brush surrounding your home. And thank the firefighters for the remarkable job they're doing protecting our million dollar investments. Kudos!
