View Full Version : Fire Near Pepperdine Campus

I just heard on MSNBC that Pepperdine Campus is being evacuated due to wild fire. I hope that everyone stays safe and that they don't lose any buildings.


Edited to add: I don't know that the fire has actually reached the campus but it's in danger. Now the news is saying they have not yet evacuated but are monitoring minute-to-minute.

No measurable rain in 6 months and no infrastructure to fight fires. Not good. This happens all the time out there. beach front stuff will be fine. Those canyons are tough to work in.
