LAO video: Sunday night's fire briefing

What begins as a behind-the-scenes video of the fire camp and media swarm at Hansen Dam turns into an emotional briefing on the deaths of two Los Angeles County firefighters. They have since been identified as Capt. Tedmund Hall and Arnaldo Quinones. Included are scenes of Foothill Boulevard, the fire camp, county fire PIO Mark Whaling and reporters from, among other outlets, KPCC, KNX, KFI, the Los Angeles Times, City News Service and several TV stations, plus some of the 8 p.m. briefing. The edited video runs 4:48, with sound.

Update: Nice to see Eric's time-lapse video of the smoke cloud I posted Saturday night getting lots of pick-ups. (Some even acknowledge where they saw it.) Watch for the video to hit the midday news on Fox 11 later today.
