UPDATE: The city of Malibu is advising residents in Puerco Canyon to begin evacuating due to a wildfire driven by powerful winds. This area is north of Pacific Coast Highway and about 1 mile west of Pepperdine University. Residents along the beach on Malibu Road may soon be evacuated. Pacific Coast Highway is closed between Kanan-Dume Road and Topanga Canyon. Residents are advised to head to the west. Evacuation centers are being set up in the Zuma Beach area.
A wildfire driven by powerful winds in the Malibu Hills this morning threatened a university, destroyed at least one home and forced the evacuation of hundreds more, authorities said.

Yeah we at Cali freeper ping list mention that crib of Mel Gibson might be threated
I hear Castle burn down Castle is famous landmark that celebrities used for party and stuff
Pepperdine students are being told to immediately gather in the auditorium.
Wow, is this the first thread on this? I am slow to get to the topic, only learned of this 8:20 this a.m.
Sure reminds me of 1993.
One mile west of Pepperdine, eh?
And I thought only the Cuyahoga caught on fire! Whod’a thunk the Pacific ocean could too?
Do the writers for the LA Times ghost write from Cleveland?
Who is it that keeps the CA ping list... I can’t seem to get on it.
I don’t think there is one list. Everyone who tries to corral one ends up with half a dozen interested people and no more.
No wonder, then...:)
Typical for the free-stylin’ CA way of life!
I wonder if some of the stuff from the Las Vegas Elvis museum went there? Yikes.
Actually I meant the State ping list our state ping list but there is cali ping list but I don’t know who run it
Oh that is just horrible!
It looks like a piece of history is given up to flames. How sad.
That’s okay, sweetie, thanks... I’ll figure it out.
That’s one way to put it..... ;)
On Fox it appears that a house right on the beach is burning!
That is an LA City Fire chopper dropping on the house. That is usually a no no, but that house is lost, and they are trying to knock it down to prevent spread.
There is very little water pressure in that area...if more than a couple engines tap the hydrants, the water is gone....
