After a wildfire burned through more than 5,200 acres in less than 48 hours in L.A County, a fire official warned that the explosive growth should be a "wake-up call" for residents.
"The fire behavior and what you saw yesterday is what we're seeing as fire conditions, very rapid fire growth and very explosive fire behavior," said L.A National Forest Chief Garcia.
As of Thursday night, the wildfire was about 27% contained, according to California's wildfire tracking website.
Seven firefighters suffered heat-related injuries Wednesday, the Los Angeles Fire Department said.
According to the fire department, 58 fire engines, 8 helicopters and two fixed wing aircraft along with more than 500 fire personnel have been deployed to douse the fire.
"There's a large fire burning on the border in San Diego County and so those (fixed-wing) aircraft are being evacuated from the fire,"
