Wildfire burns homes, winery in L.A.'s posh Bel-Air neighborhoodThe so-called Skirball Fire, which erupted early on Wednesday as the latest in a rash of major blazes fueled by hot, dry Santa Ana winds, had burned about 150 acres near large estates in the Bel-Air neighborhood of Los Angeles by early afternoon. Firefighters battled to save multimillion-dollar homes in the path of the flames, which also forced the closure of the San Diego (405) Freeway in both directions, and warned that if the winds picked up again in the evening the situation could become even more dire. "It would be safe to say there are hundreds of homes in the area," said Brian Humphrey, spokesman for the Los Angeles Fire Department.
