DARYN KAGAN, CNN ANCHOR: We're going to start with a breaking story we have out of Southern California, which is taking place in the Thousand Oaks area. That is where there is a bunch of wind and brushfire, and we also have a number of houses that are in danger on this day after Christmas morning.
We're getting these live picture from our affiliate KTTV. We've been following the story for about an hour now.
Now, the fire itself is not that big: We're looking at about 20 to 25 acres. What is significant here, it is within about a football field's distance of some very expensive homes, a number of homes in this area.
This, once again, is Thousand Oaks. This is just across the Ventura County line. For those of you familiar with Southern California, this is the community you pass through as you're going from downtown on the interstate, 101, up into the Santa Barbara area.
A number of homes in this area. It seems unusual to be having flames and brushfires this time of the year, but it has been very dry, and there are significant high winds in Southern California this morning.
Once again, this fire burning out-of-control in Thousand Oaks, about 30 miles outside of downtown Los Angeles. We'll continue to track this story and bring you more with our affiliates and with our own reporters in Southern California.
