Malibu canyon hillsides holding firm

MALIBU (KABC) The scorched hillsides held firm, despite some substantial heavy rains overnight.

Authorities put sandbags and tarps in place before the rain, which has so far worked pretty well.

But people aren't out of the woods just yet.

L.A. County fire officials say in Southern California, the weather can turn on a dime.

Authorities in Malibu will remain on alert through the weekend as the last round of wet weather moves through the area.
