Veronique de Turenne runs the media gauntlet near Suzanne Somers' house on Old Malibu Road and posts some photos of the scene. Would the torching of four homes anywhere else bring "The Today Show?" The fire was a story last night when it was out of control and a looming disaster, but it shouldn't be national news today. Mark Lacter notes that the last fire brought an economic infusion to the beach city.
At the scene: Jacob Soboroff takes his LA Observed video camera to the fire's starting point and shows how it spread. See the video.
