KCBS Cameraman Gives Viewers Live Look at LA Wildfire’s Front Lines

KCBS-KCAL cameraman J.R. Hall used the latest technology to take viewers right up to the front lines of the Colby fire in the hills above Glendora and Azusa, CA, often broadcasting live.

“Thank goodness sometimes it’s in black and white and not color because it’d be a little bit scarier if it was in color to see all that fire,” The cameraman for the Los Angeles CBS owned station told KCBS reporter Melanie Woodrow. “I’ve worked in some dangerous and hostile environments all around the world for CBS and this was right up there, it was pretty scary.”

The Los Angeles Times reports as of Thursday night, the fire had burned more than 1,700 acres and was 30 percent contained.
