Wildfire Roars into 90265 Area of Ventura County and Threatens to Burn South and East into Unincorporated Malibu and Then to City

• Winds Lessened and Rainfall Provided Support for Firefighters on Front Lines of Monster Blaze

LITTLE SYCAMORE VANTAGE—Photographer Paul Grundman captures the smoke and the reflection of the flames as the Springs Fire threatens the eastern boundary of Ventura County where residents have a Malibu 90265 mailing address. Residents of the Deer Creek and Yerba Buena neighborhoods were the last of the evacuees to be allowed back to their homes this week. As The News went to press on Tuesday, stubborn hot spots were being mopped up and many of the nearly 2000 firefighters who managed to protect every home in the 28,000-acre burn area began returning to their home stations to await their next assignment.
ANOTHER CALLING—Surfers answered personal sirens as the monster wildfire was being fought by local, state and regional fire units.
PROXIMITY—Residents who declined to evacuate the burn zone watched as the out-of-control flames climbed toward Deer Creek. Even at 70 percent containment, fire officials did not rule out the Springs Fire’s ability to steamroll through the Arroyo Sequit area, which would have put it less than a few dozen yards from the City of Malibu’s western boundary.
AFTERMATH—State Parks experienced the devastation of some of the most popular public recreation sites on the West Coast.
