Forest fire destroys 2 homes in L.A.

The Los Angeles Times reported Sunday that a wildfire broke out earlier in the da and destroyed two homes and three motor homes.
Residents of 450 homes were ordered to evacuate.
No injuries have been reported, but several other buildings were destroyed.
Firefighters said that they have a "good handle" on the fire and are trying to extinguish it by nightfall because the wind could spark new fires.
The evacuees are taking shelter in an area high school.
Witnesses said they could see large flames close to their homes.
About 1,000 people were called out to try to put out the fire, and many will remain on duty through the night.
Airplanes and helicopters are trying to help put out the fire by dropping water on it from the air.
