We didn't start the fire
The picturesque hillside campus had to be evacuated this morning due to wildfires raging through the Malibu Canyon area. The posh Malibu Colony beachfront community is also threatened by the blaze.
Sadly, the Castle Kashan, the multimillion-dollar themed residence modeled after castles in Scotland, has already been at least partially destroyed. The castle, which was completed just prior to my arrival in Malibu, has been a local landmark since the late 1970s.
Here's hoping that everyone at Pep and environs rides out the firestorm safely.
