If you're listening to fire reports on local AM radio, take their geography with a (big) grain of salt. They've got the fire all over the Malibu map and some of the info is wrong.
Fire began in Malibu Bowl area. More than 2,300 acres burned thus far. Estimated 35 homes destroyed (*including home belonging to Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers) with about 200 more in direct fire danger.
PCH is closed to all traffic - except evacuees - between Malibu Canyon and Trancas. You can get out but you can't get back in.
Kanan, Malibu Canyon and Corral Canyon roads are closed.
Wind has kicked up a bit again. Smoke everywhere. Water-gathering helicopters buzz the Cove every few minutes.
No visible flames from Paradise Cove.
firefighters arrive in the Cove.
