Transcript for More than a quarter million displaced because of California fires
And the wildfires, the new eruption today. The woolsey fire outside los Angeles, threatening homes. There's been a massive aerial assault all day. And tonight, new video emerging of the terrifying escape from paradise, California. A family with four small children forced like so many families to drive through the flames just to survive. But so many facing the same thing, did not survive. Ten more bodies have been discovered tonight. We have both stories, that potential nor'easter in a moment here, but first, the urgent effort to knock down the fire from the air. ABC's will Carr from California. Reporter: Tonight, an all-out assault on the woolsey fire. The terrain is too steep, you can't get hand crews in here. Reporter: Dc-10s and chinook helicopters attacking a new flareup after intense firefighting. As our gio Benitez peak fire in Simi Valley, firefighters are taking no chances. The camp fire, hundreds still missing, many happy to be alive. Oh, my god. People's tires are popping. Reporter: Michelle and Daniel Simmons and their four kids barely made it out. Ah! It's okay guys, it's okay, just keep going baby, keep going baby. There was a woman on the side of the road running with her baby. Reporter: Do you know if she made it? Reporter: We don't know. Reporter: The Simmons' entire family, more than 50 people, all losing their homes. It's that fine line between being so incredibly grateful to be alive and just so, so sad, because, you know, that was our life. Everybody I know lost everything. It's real sad. Reporter: Brad Wheldon, one of the only residents still in paradise, his house still standing in a neighborhood reduced to ash. I don't know if I was brave enough or stupid enough, but we stayed and fought it, and mom wouldn't have left even if I wanted her to, so -- and she's 90 years old and blind. Reporter: Tens of thousands displaced. A family of 19 reunited. A healing moment for a community scarred by disaster. And will Carr with us from California again tonight. And will, I know that in the south, there's still a very real wind danger tonight and no rain in the forecast? Reporter: That's right, David. With destruction already across California, unfortunately, there's no rain in the forecast until next week. There is a red flag warning in southern California through Wednesday and there is thick smoke smothering a large portion of the state tonight. David? Just a devastating scene there behind you, repeated all across that state. Will Carr, thank you. We will stay on the fires.
