Malibu on Fire -- Again!

11/24/2007 12:29 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Nearly a month after wildfires ripped through Southern California and killed 14 people, another brush fire has broken out in Malibu.


It began around 3:30 AM near the top of Corral Canyon, and over 1,600 acres have been destroyed. At least 35 homes have been lost and another 200 are being threatened. Thus far, no injuries have been reported.

According to the Malibu city website all areas from Corral Canyon west to Trancas Canyon Road are under mandatory evacuation.

An evacuation center has been set up by the Red Cross at Agoura High School. The city advises people not to evacuate to Zuma Beach because there is heavy smoke in the area.

I'm amazed at how many grammar, syntax, and punctuation errors there are in this article. Don't you people hire anyone with more than a junior high school education?

Here they go again! The Malibu fires.....nothing new for the area, but the peeps keep building there and running up the cost of insurance for the less fortunate.

I could care less if they burn......

These areas should be BANNED for rebuilding!

And Frisco is thinking about "Fireplace" bans? Malibu is one BIG fireplace and even they aren't banning the old hearth.

Malibu people remind me of people who rebuild their trailers in the same spot after a bowling ball twister rips through their parks, as well as people who rebuild houses below see levels and right next to failing levees. Still a bummer though. It's never cool to see anyone lose a house to natural disasters. Rich or Poor. People still die when this happens.

What happened to the country? Hope celebrities and wealthy people can do something for the rebuilding.

why do so many people want to say such horrible things about something like this, I cannot imagine anyone with any sense even thinking something like this in a time like this for people. Obviously you all live in the city in a track house, and have never lived in the country. Don't knock it before you try it.............. This is a beautiful place to live, and just like some people live in the midwest and have tornados, and snow , or live by a flood area, why would you want to live like that.....

With all due respect, the great majority of people who live in Malibu are not stars, not celebrities, not rich. They cannot afford to lose their homes. And even if losing your home does not devastate you financially, it is a devastating blow emotionally to see the loss of so many memories and so much of who you are.

Act Now--- ;-)

But I do hope they can get it under control. It is a beautiful area. I wonder if there is a fire bug?

:-) - If the Santa Anas die down a bit, they might have a better
chance. I know that fire is Mother Nature's natural regenerator, but
as man has established lives & homes in these areas, this cyclic
occurance becomes a terrible curse as opposed to a blessing. Sad that
it's Thanksgiving too. That would free up extra ppl to help out,
tho... The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

annie, I apologize if my comments were a bit crass! Seriously! I live in Az and if it gets any hotter we'll be on fire too! Plus we don't have the luxury of living near an ocean and we are drying up quickly. We'll soon be bone dry, that is unless they can ever make an effective desalinization system like they're trying to do in Cali. and then pipe it over here. No matter where you live, I guess nowhere is perfect. Sorry, so heartless! ( And I meant 'sea', not 'see').
