California fire burns Bel-Air mansions as spread continues

Residents of Los Angeles' wealthy Bel-Air neighbourhood have found their homes under threat after another wildfire erupted in California. The so-called Skir-ball Fire destroyed several homes in the exclusive area, quickly spreading over 150 acres. It is the latest wildfire in the state, which has already seen widespread destruction from a series of uncontrolled blazes. By Wednesday night local time, California's fire service said it had threatened 12,000 buildings, destroyed 150, and was only "5 percent contained".
