Where Are The Fires in California?

First, thank you to the dozens of past guests, and the domestic and international travel agents that have reached out to check on our safety during the fires.  Fortunately, we are safe, and our heart goes out to those in the affected areas.  No major fires have hit the general Hollywood or Beverly Hills areas.  When one sees the news, it can look like the whole state is up in flames. This time of year is typically fire season in California.  It’s when the brush in the hills and mountains are at their driest, and when the Santa Ana winds can kick up.  In fact, last year at about this same time (and into December) California had the Skirball Fire,
