"Wild Fire"

October 21, 1996. Calabasas, California. Motorists notice a brush fire burning along the side of the freeway. When firefighters arrive, about 1/2 acre of brush is on fire. But suddenly, the fire is raging out of control and racing toward Malibu, threatening homes and lives. The “Calabasas Fire” will burn for nearly a week, blackening more than 13,000 acres, destroying dozens of homes, and injuring eleven people, including six firefighters. Was this the work of another firebug or did the fire begin accidentally? Perhaps a carelessly tossed cigarette or a spark from an engine started the blaze. Or, could it have been the fault of Southern California Edison, the company that maintains the power lines?
