400 people trapped by deadly California blaze
"A wind-driven wildfire near Palm Springs engulfed a fire engine Thursday, killing three firefighters, and up to 400 people were trapped at a recreational vehicle park when flames blocked the only road out, officials said.

'Everybody is hunkered down here. They're fighting the fire around us. It's across the street from us,' said Charles Van Brunt, a ranger at the station at the entrance to Silent Valley Club."
