19 February 2018
The fourth-largest wildfire in California history continues to grow and threaten thousands of homes despite armies of fire crews and fleets of bulldozers and aircraft. Although Santa Ana winds eased on Friday amid the blaze northwest of Los Angeles, they are expected to return with a vengeance over the weekend. And the fire is so large that winds on one end may be gustier than those on the other side.
Five people, including a young girl and her father, were hospitalized Friday night after a shooting erupted in a Pacoima neighborhood. The shooter was at large after the incident. Emergency personnel responded to a home near Pala Avenue and Jouett Street shortly before 8 p.m. Authorities found four men between the ages of 20 and 30 suffering from gunshot wounds.
