Cell phone video offers clue to start of California wildfires

Nine major wildfires burned about 40 square miles in San Diego County last week, according to a California Fire spokesman. Authorities have formed a task force to look into the causes of the fires and determine whether or not they were arson.

A cell phone video shot by Adam Jordan captured the early moments of a fire that started in Carlsbad California. The video could be a major clue for investigators trying to determine what sparked the wildfire. Kyung Lah reports.
