A FIRESTORM HERE ON THIS HILLTOP HOME OF THE REAGAN

PRESIDENTIAL LIBRARY IN SIMI VALLEY WE CAN SEE FIRE IN

SEVERAL DIRECTIONS THESE GROUNDS AND THE LIBRARY'S TREASURED

HISTORY SPARED THANKS TO A RELENTLESS AERIAL ASSAULT BY

WATER-DROPPING TANKERS AND CHOPPERS THE INCREDIBLY

POWERFUL SANTA ANA WINDS THIS REGION HAD BRACED FOR CAME WITH A

FURY OVERNIGHT, PUSHING FLAMES UPHILL SIDES AND FORCING

THOUSANDS TO FLEE THEIR HOMES. NAMED THE EASY FIRE

FOR THE STREET NEAR WHERE IT BEGAN, IT HAS PROVEN TO BE ANYTHING

BUT EASY AS I WITNESSED ALL DAY ON THE FRONT LINES.

THE WALL OF FLAMES IGNITED JUST BEFORE DAWN QUICKLY RACING

THROUGH THE DRY HILLS NEAR SIMI VALLEY ABOUT AN HOUR NORTH WEST OF

L.A. I HAVE BEEN WATCHING THIS BATTLE TO STOP

THE FIRE FROM CROSSING A RIDGE LINE YOU CAN SEE ME MOVING

AROUND THE SANTA ANA WINDS ARE VERY STRONG.

THE FIRE HAS GROWN LEAPS AND BOUNDS SINCE IT BROKE OUT SOMETIME

AROUND SIX THIS MORNING. THOSE DANGEROUS 40 TO

50-MILE-PER-HOUR WINDS WHIPPING UPFAIRNADOS. THE WINDS ARE GUSTING

SO HIGH. HOW BRITTLE THIS IS. THE HUMIDITY PROBABLY

IN THE SINGLE DIGITS RIGHT NOW. THIS IS FRESH FUEL AND

THAT'S WHY THIS FIRE IS MOVING SO QUICKLY WE HAVE SEEN THREE

WATER DROPS HERE FROM THE AIR, AND YET THE FLAMES ARE STILL, WE

ARE ABOUT 20, 30 FEET FROM US. THE FIRE SCORCHING

1,600 ACRES, THREATENING THOUSANDS OF STRUCTURES.

800 FIREFIGHTERS IN A RACE AGAINST TIME. SO FAR ZERO PERCENT

CONTAINMENT. THIS THING IS ABOUT TO JOURNAL THE ROAD RIGHT

IN FRONT OF US RIGHT IN FRONT OF US FLAMES COMING WITHIN

50 FEET OF THE RONALD REAGAN PRESIDENTIAL LIBRARY.

EMPLOYEES BRACING FOR THE WORST, PROTECTING PRECIOUS PIECES OF

HISTORY INSIDE. >> THE FIRE ACTUALLY SURROUNDED THE LIBRARY

360 DEGREES, BUT THE FIREFIGHTERS DID AN OUTSTANDING JOB.

>> Reporter: BUT THE DANGER ISN'T OVER. THE ENTIRE FOOTPRINT

OF THE FIRE IS UNDER THREAT. >> TIME TO GO.

>> Reporter: 26,000 PEOPLE FORCED TO FLEE THEIR HOMES.

>> TIME TO GET OUT DON'T STICK AROUND AND WAIT.

>> Reporter: YOUR VEHICLE IS PACKED? >> RIGHT THERE

I GOT MY THREE DOGS AND TRUCK READY TO GO. >> Reporter: RESIDENTS

FRANTICALLY RUSHED TO SAVE HORSES FROM A NEARBY RANCH

THIS HORSE SEEMINGLY RAN BACK INTO THE FLAMES TO HELP OTHERS

GET OUT. LOOKS LIKE IT'S COMING THIS WAY

>> YEAH. THAT'S WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE

HOPEFULLY WE GET LUCKY. >> Reporter: THE EASY

FIRE, AS IT'S CALLED, ONE OF SEVERAL NEW INFERNOS SPARKED BY

TODAY'S DANGEROUS WINDS. IN RIVERSIDE COUNTY,

ELDERLY RESIDENTS HAD TO BE EVACUATED WHEN THE HILL FIRE IGNITED

NEARBY. >> THE SMOKE STARTED COMING OUT.

>> Reporter: FIREFIGHTERS ARE CONTINUING TO BATTLE

THE GETTY FIRE ON THE WEST SIDE OF L.A., NOW 27% CONTAINED.

OFFICIALS RELEASING VIDEO OF THE MOMENT THEY BELIEVE FIRE

IGNITED EARLY MONDAY WHEN A TREE BRANCH SNAPPED AND FELL INTO

A POWERLINE. AND IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA 300,000

REMAIN IN THE DARK THEIR POWER SHUT OFF BY UTILITY COMPANY

PG&E. >> THE DISRUPTION OBVIOUSLY FOR MILLIONS

OF PEOPLE IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA IS UNPRECEDENTED AND

UNACCEPTABLE AND THEY ARE GOING TO HAVE TO FIND A WAY TO

COMPENSATE FOLKS. >> Reporter: TONIGHT THE DANGEROUS WINDS

ARE EXPECTED TO PERSIST AS FIREFIGHTERS CONTINUE

TO BATTLE BLAZES ON BOTH ENDS OF THIS STATE.

THE DEVASTATING RETURN OF THE SANTA ANA WINDS HAS MADE THESE FIRES

HERE SO DANGEROUS, SO UNPREDICTABLE. AN ARMY OF

FIREFIGHTERS IS HAVING TROUBLE JUST KEEPING UP

MIGUEL ALMAGUER IS ON THE BATTLE LINE. >> Reporter: TONIGHT

THIS IS WHAT THE BATTLE LOOKS LIKE ON THE FRONT LINES.

A RAGING BLOWTORCH AN INFERNO NO FIREFIGHTER OR

HOMEOWNER CAN OUTRUN AS THIS FIRE BURNED ITS INCREDIBLY

DANGEROUS WITH THE WIND IT'S GOING RIGHT UP

THIS RIDGE HERE. AS GUSTS APPROACH HURRICANE FORCE

TEARING THROUGH BOTH ENDS OF CALIFORNIA, CREWS ARE UP AGAINST A

DOUBLE THREAT. FLAMES AND THE WINDS THAT FAN THEM SUDDENLY

TURNING DAY TO NIGHT THESE ARE THE CONDITIONS

FIREFIGHTERS FACE IN THESE WIND-DRIVEN FIRES.

IT'S NOT JUST THE FLAMES ON THE MOVE, BUT THESE SMALL EMBERS

WHICH COULD SPARK A NEW FIRE A MILE AWAY DEADLY CONDITIONS

OUTSIDE LOS ANGELES AS RESIDENTS SCRAMBLED TO FLEE HILLSIDE

COMMUNITIES WITH NO TIME TO WASTE. WE SAW THE TREACHEROUS

CONDITIONS WITH FIREFIGHTERS AS THE WINDS HIT 60

MILES PER HOUR, IT'S BLINDING OUT HERE. LOOK AT HOW FAST THE

FLAMES ARE MOVING. THE POWERFUL WINDS, KNOWN AS SANTA ANAS IN

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, ORIGINATE FROM DRY, HIGH PRESSURE IN THE

DESERT GAINING SPEED WHILE RIPPING THROUGH CHANNELS IN MOUNTAIN

TERRAIN. THIS IS WHAT THEY DO AND THIS IS WHAT THEY

SOUND LIKE >> SOUNDS LIKE HELL WAS BREAKING THROUGHS

WILL THINGS WERE COMING APART.

>> Reporter: AND IT WAS. FIREFIGHTERS ON THEIR

HEELS PLAYING DEFENSE AND LOSING GROUND. >> SANTA ANA WINDS A

BEAST OF ITS OWN ALMOST AT ITS MERCY. >> Reporter: IT'S THE

MOST EXTREME WIND EVENT IN THE LAST DECADE, AND IT'S NOT

OVER CREWS ARE TRYING TO HIT THIS FIRE FROM THE

AIR, BUT THERE IS LITTLE THEY CAN DO TO SLOW IT BECAUSE THE

WINDS ARE SO STRONG. THEY CAN REACH UPWARDS OF 80 MILES PER HOUR

LATER ON TONIGHT BUT THEY DID FIND BREAKS IN THE WEATHER.

THE AIR ATTACK HAS BEEN A MAJOR ASSET ALL DAY LONG, BUT IT CAN'T

BEAT BACK ALL OF THE FLAMES AS THEY CONTINUE TO GROW

CALIFORNIA IS UNDER SIEGE. NO MATCH FOR MOTHER

NATURE'S WRATH THE NEW REALITIES ON THE FRONT LINES AS

WIND-DRIVEN FIRES TAKE AIM ACROSS THE STATE AND LESTER, THOSE

DANGEROUS WINDS, AS YOU KNOW, PERSIST TONIGHT MEANS THE

THREAT WILL ALSO LOOM HERE OVERNIGHT WE SHOULD SAY NOT FAR

FROM HERE FIREFIGHTERS DID TRY TO TAKE A STAND ON HIGHWAY 23,

BUT THEY LOST THE BATTLE THE FLAMES ACTUALLY

LEAPT OVER THAT HIGHWAY, BUT THEY ARE MAKING PROGRESS IN

THAT AREA. SOME GOOD NEWS TONIGHT.

LESTER. >> YEAH, I KNOW THEY WERE TRYING TO HOLD

THAT LINE. MIGUEL, THANKS WE HAVE SEEN SEVERAL

SMALLER FIRES BREAK OUT THROUGHOUT THE DAY, LIKELY IGNITED BY

FLOATING WIND-DRIVEN EMBERS THAT'S WHY WE ARE ALL

WEARING FLAME RETARDANT CLOTHING HERE IN THE FIRE ZONE.

AND EVERYONE WANTS TO KNOW HOW LONG THIS EXTREME FIRE THREAT

WILL LAST. AL ROKER IS TRACKING IT

AL, WHAT ARE WE LOOKING AT >> LESTER, WHERE YOU

ARE AND THROUGH SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA YOU CAN SEE THE WIND

GUSTS ANYWHERE FROM 25 TO 35 MILES PER HOUR AND THAT'S WHY WE

STILL HAVE AN EXTREME RISK, THE POTENTIAL FOR RAPID FIRE SPREAD

TODAY AND ON INTO TOMORROW THE STRONGEST WINDS

THROUGH TOMORROW AFTERNOON. WE HAVE THAT EXTREME

RED FLAG WARNING CONTINUING, 19 MILLION PEOPLE AT RISK

WINDS UP TO 80 MILES PER HOUR FAST-MOVING FIRE A

POSSIBILITY. THE DANGEROUS WINDS WILL CONTINUE THROUGH

TOMORROW AFTERNOON, BUTFINALLY DYING DOW BURKS NOT BEFORE THEY

COULD GUSTY UP TO 80 MILES PER HOUR, LESTER

SO ANOTHER 24 HOURS OF EXTREME DANGER >> ALL RIGHT

WE ARE STILL FEELING THEM RIGHT NOW THANK YOU.

>>> FOR THE FIRST TIME TONIGHT WE ARE SEEING U.S. MILITARY IMAGES

OF THAT DARING MISSION IN SYRIA THAT KILLED THE WORLD'S MOST

WANTED TERRORIST THE LEADER OF ISIS RICHARD ENGEL IS

INSIDE SYRIA WITH NEW DETAILS ABOUT THE RAID.

>> Reporter: YOU CAN SEE DELTA FORCE COMMANDOS MOVING IN ON

THE RURAL COMPOUND WHERE THE WORLD'S TOP TERRORIST WAS HOLED

UP. >> THOSE WHO CAME OUT OF THE BUILDING WERE

CHECKED FOR WEAPONS AND EXPLOSIVES AND MOVED AWAY FROM THE

IMMEDIATE AREA. >> Reporter: WHEN U.S. TROOPS STORMED IN,

OTHERS WERE INSIDE. >> FIVE ISIS MEMBERS INSIDE THE COMPOUND

PRESENTED A THREAT TO THE FORCE. THEY WERE THEN ENGAGED

BY THE RAID FORCE AND KILLED. >> Reporter: AMERICAN

SPECIAL OPS FOUND ABU BAKR AL BAGHDADI INSIDE A TUNNEL WITH

U.S. COMMANDERS NOW SAY TWO CHILDREN. >> WHEN CAPTURED AT

THE HANDS OF U.S. FORCES WAS IMMINENT, BAGHDADI DETONATED A

BOMB HE WORE KILLING HIMSELF AND TWO YOUNG CHILDREN WITH HIM.

>> Reporter: AFTER THE RAID AMERICAN FORCES DESTROYED THE

COMPOUND THE EXPLOSION LEVELING THE FACILITY

HE WAS TRACKED DOWN BY A SPY. ONE OF BAGHDADI'S OWN

SECURITY AGENTS WAS PASSING ON THE COMPOUND'S LAY OUT AND

FEATURES, INCLUDING WATER TANKS ON THE ROOF SO U.S. AERIALIAL

SURVEILLANCE COULD FIND IT. THE SPY WAS SECRETLY

WORKING FOR KURDISH LEADER GENERAL KOBANI, WHOSE FORCES ARE

ALLIED WITH THE U.S. FROM OUR SOURCE, WE LEARNED HOW MANY ROOMS

WERE IN THE HOUSE, THAT THERE WAS A TUNNEL, AND HOW MANY

PEOPLE AND GUARDS WERE INSIDE, HE SAYS. AND HE SAYS THE ISIS

MOLE DOUBLE-CROSSED BAGHDADI BECAUSE ISIS KILLED HIS RELATIVES

HE WANTED TO TAKE REVENGE, HE SAYS, AGAINST ISIS AND

BAGHDADI HIMSELF DO YOU THINK THIS OPERATION WOULD HAVE

BEEN POSSIBLE WITHOUT THIS SOURCE? NO, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN

IMPOSSIBLE TO EXECUTE, HE SAYS. WE WOULD GET DAILY

UPSTATES AND PASS THEM ON TO AMERICAN FORCES. THE U.S. MILITARY SAYS

BAGHDADI'S REMAINS WERE BURIED AT SEA JUST LIKE OSAMA BIN

LADEN. LESTER. >> ALL RIGHT

RICHARD ENGEL IN SYRIA. THANKS.

INQUIRY YET. JOHN BOLTON, THE FORMER NATIONAL

SECURITY ADVISOR, ASKED BY HOUSE DEMOCRATS TO ANSWER

QUESTIONS BEHIND CLOSED DOORS NEXT WEEK

IT'S NOT CLEAR IF HE'LL SHOW, BUT IF HE DOES HIS APPEARANCE

COULD BE CRITICAL. ACCORDING TO OTHER WITNESSES, BOLTON

REPEATEDLY RAISED CONCERNS ABOUT RUDY GIULIANI, THE

PRESIDENT'S PERSONAL ATTORNEY, AND HIS INTERACTIONS WITH

UKRAINE. IT COMES AS WE ARE LEARNING NEW

REVELATIONS FROM A COMBAT VETERAN WHO WORKED ON THE NATIONAL

SECURITY COUNCIL DRAWING A DIRECT LINE BETWEEN MILITARY AID

TO UKRAINE AND THE PRESIDENT'S PUSH FOR POLITICAL HELP

LIEUTENANT COLONEL ALEXANDER VINDMAN DESCRIBING THE MONEY

AS CONTINGENT ON THE INVESTIGATIONS INTO THE PRESIDENT'S

POLITICAL RIVALS ACCORDING TO TWO SOURCES FAMILIAR WITH

VINDMAN'S CLOSED-DOOR TESTIMONY. VINDMAN ALSO TOLD

LAWMAKERS HE TRIED TO ADD BACK TO THE WHITE HOUSE ROUGH TRANSCRIPT

OF THE JULY CALL BETWEEN PRESIDENT TRUMP AND THE

UKRAINIAN PRESIDENT KEY OMITTED PHRASES ABOUT THE BIDENS, FOR

EXAMPLE. SOURCES SAY VINDMAN DID NOT ASCRIBE AN

ULTERIOR MOTIVE TO THE OMISSIONS. >> HE TESTIFIED ON TWO

OCCASIONS THE ELLIPSES, THE DOT, DOT, DOT SHOULD HAVE

BEEN WORDS SOME PEOPLE MAY SEE IT AS SIGNIFICANT

I DON'T SEE IT AS SIGNIFICANT. >> Reporter: TODAY

MORE DEPOSITIONS FROM CAREER OFFICIALS, ONE OF WHOM SAYS BOLTON

WARNED HIM GIULIANI COULD BE AN OBSTACLE TO THE WHITE HOUSE

RELATIONSHIP WITH UKRAINE, ACCORDING TO HIS OPENING STATEMENT

OBTAINED BY NBC NEWS. >> THERE WERE A LOT OF PROFESSIONALS IN THE

ADMINISTRATION IN FOREIGN POLICY WHO WERE DEEPLY DISTURBED

BY THE FACT THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP ALLOWED THE CREATION

OF SORT OF THIS OTHER GROUP, A PARALLEL GROUP.

>> Reporter: LATE TONIGHT THE WHITE HOUSE SAYS THE

SUGGESTION VINDMAN WANTED TO ADD WORDS TO THE ROUGH TRANSCRIPT

IS FALSE WE ARE ALSO LEARNING FROM JOHN BOLTON'S

LAWYER THAT BOLTON IS NOT WILLING TO APPEAR IN FRONT OF CONGRESS

VOLUNTARILY. KEEP IN MIND THOUGH, HE COULD STILL BE

SUBPOENAED LESTER. >> ALL RIGHT

HALLIE JACKSON TONIGHT. THANK YOU.

POLICY ON NOT FACT-CHECKING POLITICAL ADS PLACED

BY CANDIDATES. >>> FOR THE THIRD TIME THIS YEAR THE FEDERAL
