St. Louis Fire Chief Dennis Jenkerson and Annie discuss the difficulties facing firefighters in California's wildfires. 

Jenkerson says it’s heartbreaking watching these people in California struggle through the wildfire that has engulfed a portion of the state. “You have to heed the warnings,” Jenkerson pleads.

The Chief says the weather conditions are what will calm or heighten the fire. It’s totally up to the weather.

The main objective of the firemen and women is to help evacuate. “They are spending a lot of their resources and time trying to get people out,” Fire Chief Jenkerson said.
