(CNN) — The entertainment industry was not immune to the impact of the fires blazing across Southern California. At the Santa Clarita Studios in Valencia, California — about 30 miles north of Los Angeles — some staffers weren’t able to get to work Monday, due to traffic on area roadways and concern about their homes, according to Variety. Interstate 5, a major north-south artery, runs directly through the area.
Well, now you know it’s important.
BTW, SSG Big Brother Collateral Damage — who’s a San Diegan (on?) and is helping out with the fire fighting — said he heard one of the local TV people say of the conflagration: “It’s spreading like wildfire!” He says he and the firefighters have been laughing about that for the last two days.
