This video was shot as the massive fire front roared through Hidden Hills Estates in Upper Yorba Linda earlier today. Believe it or not there were looky-loos throughout the area as this fire approached; we tried to warn them they only had a few moments, but when this thing hit, the race to get the hell out was on.
There was an obvious lack of resources available which no doubt contributed to all these multi-million dollar homes going up. There just weren't enough engines in the area to make a difference. Also, water pressure in the region was pathetically low. The firefighters with me as the front roared through were PRIVATE contracted folks, hired by the folks who owned the massive home we were alongside. They were the only equipment we saw up there for about 40 minutes after the front went through. By then it was too late for many other homes.
This footage was shot in the thick of it all - not down at the bottom of the hill with a cellphone cam! This footage is not for any rebroadcast without prior contact with/consent of the poster!
