Los_Angeles_FireGov. Jerry Brown on Sunday declared a state of emergency in Los Angeles County as firefighters continue to battle a 5,900-acre brush fire in the Verdugo Mountains north of downtown Los Angeles that has destroyed three homes and shut down a stretch of the 210 Freeway.

The governor’s declaration came at the urging of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, who said it would ensure that state and federal assistance was provided as quickly as possible. Garcetti described the fire as the biggest in the history of the city in terms of sheer acreage.

Firefighters got some relief Sunday from a heat wave that has gripped much of the state for days. Temperatures were slightly cooler, in the mid-90s, and there were even brief showers in some burn areas as monsoonal moisture from Tropical Storm Lidia moved into the region. Winds were also calmer, but officials warned that could change quickly.

“The biggest challenge and risk is the wind,” said Los Angeles Fire Chief Ralph Terrazas.

    Many left wingers said Texas got what they deserved because most are right-wing, God believing, Trump supporters. I guess some could now be of the mindset that payback is a biotch.

    TELL BROWN TO BUCH UP AND TAKE CARE OF THIS PROBLEM HIMSELF, SINCE HE WANT TO LEAVE THE USA. LET US SEE HOW GOOD THIS IDIOT DOES. IT IS IDIOTS LIKE HIM, PELOSIA, AND OTHER FROM CALIF, ALONG WITH SOROS, OBAMA, HILLIARY, KERRY, AND ALL THEIR ASSOCIATES PLUS THE NEWS MEDIA THAT IS TRYING TO RUIN US AND NOW IT IS TIME TO SHUT THEM DOWN.

    GOOGLE, MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD TERROR CAMPS IN THE USA, & THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES, & PUBLIC LAW 414,PG.2, SECTION 212. THIS CAN AND WILL BE WORSE THAN N KOREA.
