Clip: 12/07/2017 | 6m 33s

Wildfires are burning out of control along the Southern California coast. Out of four fires on Thursday, the biggest and most destructive blazed its way down to the beach in Ventura County, closing parts of a major freeway. At least 200 homes and other buildings have been destroyed and forced tens of thousands of people to evacuate. Miles O’Brien learns more from John Sepulvado of KQED.
