ABC's zohreen shah has the latest on the ground there. This fire season has been relentless. Reporter: Hi, whit. It really has. The road behind me right now is blocked from cars coming in, officials urging people to get out. This is one of multiple fires threatening homes and lives. Overnight the bobcat fire near Los Angeles exploding in size to over 70,000 acres threatening structures, homeowners desperately hoping to protect their homes. Containment still under 20%. And then further east where we are, the 20,000-acre eldorado fire which was accidentally started during a gender reveal party now claiming the life of a firefighter.
