    Colby/Glendora Wildfire in Los Angeles


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     THTURNER told me, 'Visually, not knowing there was a fire in the area when I left for work, the view was at first breathtaking. The golden reflection on the water and darkness of the orange cloud above against the blue sky was stunning. Then I realized there must be a fire. Heartbreaking. As I drove through Venice Beach and pulled to the side of the road to catch the second shot with the sun over the large cloud heading west, it reminded me of the clouds we created around the spaceship for the movie Independence Day years ago. The third shot sort of sums up LA during fire season and winter - 80 degrees, bright sun, blue sky, palm trees and of course dangerous fire hazards and desert winds.'
