President Bush will tour the fire devastation in California today, where 1,500 homes have burned since Sunday.

One of them belonged to Larry Himmel, a reporter for San Diego television station KFMB, who broadcast live as his house went up in flames.

On our blog, we post the video of Himmel's broadcast from his own home.
