A California senator from the 27th Senate District, representing areas in Los Angeles says, “fires do no respect politics,” when referring to the two deadly wildfires burning in Ventura County.

At a press conference in Thousand Oaks, California on Saturday, Senator Henry Stern goes on to say, “So I would beg the president to pursue a major disaster declaration and not make this a political incident.”

Adding: “We have many parties, really views out here, and this is really not about politics, it’s about people.”
