Transcript for Fierce winds kicking up in Southern California wildfires
Another major fire burning in the east. Rob Marciano is there in sylmar, California. The winds kicking up making it so hard to fight these fires. Very much, George. Here in east L.A. County the fire for now at least is in the higher terrain thankfully but clearly it's already been through this neighborhood. Already burned down several homes. These cars incinerated when fire came through. You see the glass blown out, the rubber melted. This metal, look how much it melted from the heat of the fire that came through here. The people we talked to last night that live in this area, I mean, they're scared and frustrated. They're worried about what's to come today in the form of more wind. They have since evacuated one again, 150,000 impacted by evacuation orders. With this fire alone which is only 5% contained and winds that are surely going to pick up the hope is they don't blow for as long or be as strong as what beer's forecasting. That is tough. You see the hulks of cars right there. Ginger, tell us how bad those Santa Ana winds will be. We've already seen 60 to 85-mile-per-hour gusts overnight. I just want to remind everyone, you see rob standing there or Marcus standing there and it doesn't look windy. That's the epitome of a gust so can you have it look calm and all of a sudden have a very strong wind come through. This is what it looks like from the cockpit of the skirball fire and want to thank all the firefighters too. They deserve such huge props. You need thousands of people to fight fires like this. How large an area that is covering. Air quality an issue. The great basin high will keep in place. Through the weekend this ringel not breaking down and see gusts anywhere from 20 to 40. I was looking through Saturday, even Sunday, very gusty winds to come, unfortunately.
