From the Huffington Post:
A Los Angeles County Sheriff’s official says two people tried to ride out the firestorm in Big Tujunga Canyon in a backyard hot tub and were critically burned.
Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore said Sunday that the pair “completely underestimated the fire” and the hot tub provided “no protection whatsoever.”
The two individuals made their way to firefighters Saturday and were airlifted out by a sheriff’s rescue helicopter.
Whitmore says the two people received adequate notification to evacuate from deputies but decided to stay.
