OT: Barbecue at my place...



Jesus... I was out in my back yard, with a worker who was cleaning my hot tub (high class problem ) and he said, "hey, look at that smoke." I replied, "Oh, I see stuff like that all the time over on the Universal lot. It's probably nothing."

Well, an hour later, it wasn't nothing.

It's about a mile from my house, but fortunately headed in the other direction.

I'm sure most of you here in LA are seeing the smoke. I know people who are seeing it in Santa Monica, Century City, etc.

So... reporting live from the scene: I'm Marc from Studio City...

They're still working on it now. I'm in the tower at 10 Universal City Plaza (the big black building), and we have a pretty amazing view of it. Looks like it's moving away to the East, towards Forest Lawn...

I worked there for years

That's why I bought my house right up the street from the Fatburger.

Pretty insane.

Brush Fire Breaks Out in Universal City
An Estimated 25 Acres Burned
AP

Mar. 30, 2007 - A wildfire spread rapidly through the rugged Hollywood Hills on Friday, tearing through dry brush and burning an estimated 25 acres. The fire was not immediately threatening nearby neighborhoods and business districts.

The fire started next to the Oakwood Toluca Hills, a corporate housing complex northwest of downtown, and spread up the north face of the hills. A column of smoke roiled into the sky behind the famous Hollywood sign that stands on the south face of the hills.

Some 150 firefighters and five helicopters battled the flames, said Fire Department spokesman Ron Myers.

There were no reports of structural damage and no formal evacuations, he said.

"I don't know the exact last date we've seen a fire in this particular area but the hills are prone to fires throughout the year," he said. "This is just a little bit earlier than what we normally see."

Southern California is parched after an extremely dry winter that left rainfall levels far below normal.

The Hollywood Hills bisect Los Angeles, forming the southern side of the San Fernando Valley. The blaze started east of Universal City, south of the Warner Bros. studios complex in Burbank and to the west of sprawling Griffith Park and Forest Lawn Memorial Park.

Scott Rowe, vice president of corporate communications for Warner Bros. Entertainment said the company was monitoring the situation closely.

"The studio is fairly filled with smoke at the moment," he said. "It's at our back door. I think a couple of our entrances have been closed at this point and we're operating normally but that could change any minute."

The Oakwood Toluca Hills housing complex has been a popular place for aspiring child actors to stay over the years. A call to the Oakwood complex was not immediately returned.

Lights flickered in some parts of the city during the fire, which burned near some power transmission lines.

"We have had no outages as a result of the fire," said spokeswoman Gale Harris of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.

"The smoke is affecting the lines, but we just made adjustments. We're OK," she said.

I sorta knew that (the "I met you at a game" part. Didn't know what had happened to Steve. Good to hear.)

I likens it to the new guy playing in his place

One thing the Kings DON'T need is another defenseman roaming around the arena.

I do see that Tukonen has scored... 3-0 Narchs in the second.

I hope everyone come out of this fine and safe. I had a major fire in my area last year. Stop short of my house and turned in another direction.

I was there fighting the fire. It was pretty amazing. The sounds that the trees make when they are going up is wicked.
And its pretty cool when the fire helicopters fly low right over you to drop water.

Looks like it's going to be a bad fire season coming up since it rained like twice this "winter".

Yeah I was at a local studio when all of a sudden.."the hills of Los Angeles are buring" by Social D came to mind. I left and went down to hang out in the Culver City area to get away from it and the horrid smell.

It's going to be really dry this spring/summer. Seattle got all of our rain. We need an extra shot of a pineapple express with a side of El Nino to go...hold the whip!
