Southern California Wildfires Force KTLA Anchor to Flee

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

Wildfire coverage across Southern California hit home for KTLA entertainment reporter Sam Rubin.

“I just had a sense it was time to go,” he said in a phone interview with the station.

Rubin’s home is in the path of the Getty fire. He said in a phoner that his family decided to flee before firefighters forced them to evacuate.


“I didn’t think to grab anything,”

Los Angeles stations have been covering wildfires around the clock as they’ve spread across the area.
