Helen Fire/News Coverage

I'm sitting here watching the LA News channels covering the Helen fire, and it is amazing how awful the coverage is. Apparently no one at any of the channels knows the area. The fire started at the 15 freeway, and almost exactly on the border of Rialto and Fontana. One side of the fire advanced down Sierra Ave into Fontana, and the other side advanced down Riverside Ave into Rialto. For instance at one point they are interviewing the Fontana USD superintendent about school evacuations, while showing footage of schools in the Rialto School District, and incorrectly saying that they had been evacuated.

If network TV is going to survive they need to get their act together.
