The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday heard from fire officials and residents about the response to the Woolsey Fire. At times, the meeting was tense. 

County fire chief Daryl Osby said it's unprecedented for major fires to be burning throughout the state at this time of year.

Malibu residents thanked firefighters, but also expressed frustration over what they said was a lack of notice to evacuate and trouble getting out along the Pacific Coast Highway.
