Transcript for California Wildfire Scorches 1,200 Acres
? To the "Index" now. Straight to California, and a wildfire that scorched 1,200 acres. Firefighters in Ventura county finally gaining an upper hand on the Christmas night blaze. Take a look at those wind-fueled flames. Drivers capturing these stunning images as they drove right through the fire zone. Tonight, it's 70% contained. Those evacuated, now thankfully home. Fire officials believe it was sparked by a downed power line. Next, cue up the "Jaws" theme. Some fishermen in Florida weren't expecting this when they tossed out the bait. Going pretty slow. Oh, yeah! And they knew better than to even think about trying to reel in this hungry great white. It circled the boat several times, thrashing and chomping on that bait. A close encounter that crew won't soon forget. And now to party preps in New York's times square. Out with the old, and in with the new theme of the new year's eve ball that will ring in 2016 -- "Gift of wonder." Crews installing 288 sparkling Waterford crystal panels, each engraved with a starburst design to inspire optimism for the new year. A good message.
