This summer could be a scorcher in Southern California. Literally. 

Officials say this year's fire season could be the worst in a century, and we've already seen a 75-percent jump in the number of blazes torching the region. But when we know that this year might be the worst on record and wildfires are already a way of life here, is there anything that can be done differently?

Inspector Anthony Akins with the LA County Fire Department joins the show with more.
