    Post Hollywood's Burning AGAIN

    Once again major wildfire in the Hollywood Hills, near the Hollywood sign.

    Zoo animals being evacuated. BTW: Anyone have a horse trailer big enough for giraffes?

    Re: Hollywood's Burning AGAIN

    We are having a near record low rainfall this year. This is not going to be a fun year for fires.

    They arrested someone already for this fire. I'm worried about all the animals at the Zoo. Hope they ALL get taken care of and escape the fire without harm.

    Fire breaks out in Griffith Park

    By Richard Winton and Jesus Sanchez, Times Staff Writers
    3:11 PM PDT, May 8, 2007



    An arson fire was set in Griffith Park today above the Greek Theatre and spread quickly to the northeastern section of the park, threatening the Los Angeles Zoo and other nearby recreation facilities, officials said.

    The Harding and Wilson municipal golf courses, the Griffith Park merry-go round as well as the zoo had been evacuated, according to the Los Angeles Recreation and Parks Department.

    The fire is being investigated as an arson and a suspect was in custody, said LAPD Officer April Harding. No identification was available.

    KTLA reported that the suspect was being treated for burns at the Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center. A hospital spokesman said they were gathering information about the suspect.

    Oh wow! I hope nothing happens to the zoo or the animals, I love walking around there and just enjoying the scenery.

    Re: Hollywood's Burning AGAIN

    Wow this is scary, its still only May and already so many fires. Living in Santa Clarita I am still having breathing issues from the 45 day long "day fire" off the I-5 in September.

    This is going to be a LONG summer.

    A little piece of heaven

    I've been sitting on my balcony looking at it all afternoon. I don't think the zoo is in too much trouble, they have buffer zones cleared all around, as well as a Golf Course on the South side.

    The suspect is being treated for burns..... I think they should hand him a bucket of water and make him help put out the fire he started, and then treat his wounds.

    Because they're sick and get a rush from setting stuff ablaze.

    I've got a bottle of rubbing alcohol to donate to pour onto his wounds...

    To help sterilize them of course.

    Don't waste money. Salt is a bit cheaper and has the same effect by stopping any bleeding.
