So I guess this is the first fire of the season here in LA.
I just drove by on Sunset Blvd, crossing the 405 to see that the police has started blocking off all traffic going onto 405 N. Turns out that the hills behind the Getty Center are on fire. Yellow clouds could been seen from afar.
Last year we had a terrible season of fires here. In fact, one day I was coming out of a dinner in Beverly Hills – when all I could see was… the air! A very strong yellow-orange tint could be seen all the way to ground level, combined with an odor of BBQ. Really weird.
