Hill and Woolsey fires have area on edge

Bulldozers are being used to push cars aside that have been abandoned on the freeways and streets. The fires in Ventura and Northern Los Angeles Counties are adding insult to grievous injury for families that have just been rocked by the 12 murders in Thousand Oaks. Now they have to evacuate.

Residents have been ordered to evacuate all the way to Malibu. In fact one of our own contributors packed up his household and left.

About the author

Los Angeles Post-Examiner staff

We are not the typical news website – nor do we wish to be. We will be offering more than news and blogs, but an opportunity for fiction writers, poets, comedians and musicians to showcase their talent and skills. Much like when the Beatles formed Apple Corps Ltd, they opened the door to all kinds of inspiring talent that never really got a shot. From that came the likes of James Taylor and others. We hope by providing a similar approach we can shine the light on some tremendous undiscovered talent and at the same time offer some familiar voices who live in Los Angeles and beyond.
