Southern California brushfire forces evacuations from multimillion dollar homes

A plume of thick smoke envelopes Southern California Monday (October 21) as a roaring fire in the Pacific Palisades threatens multimillion-dollar homes as firefighters begin evacuations. Mandatory evacuations were ordered in Pacific Palisades on Monday afternoon as firefighters worked to extinguish a fast-moving brush fire that has scorched at least 40 acres and threatened multimillion-dollar homes. The flames erupted shortly around 10:30 a.m.. in the 500 block of North Palisades Drive and quickly burned an acre, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department. An hour into the firefight, the Palisades Fire had grown to at least 30 acres and was threatening home along Vista Grande Drive and Charmel Lane, fire officials said. Estimates around 3 p.m. placed the fire at 40 acres.
