The Hollywood Hills Are Burning

My office building faces the Hollywood Hills just off the 101 on Vine St. An hour ago I looked out the window to see a giant plume of smoke billowing just north of the Hollywood sign! There apparently is a huge brushfire burning off Barham Blvd near the Oakwood Apartment complex - known best as the party pad bands stay in while recording their major label debuts.

There have been two power surges in my building in the last 30 minutes. Everytime we have a power surge the fire doors SLAM SHUT over the elevators. It's frickin CRAZY!

Watch video of the fire and
