Fire burns 2 homes

A fire burned 750 acres and destroyed two homes northeast of Los Angeles Sunday, forcing the evacuation of about 1,200 people, the Associated Press reported.

The fire, which started early Sunday, also burned a garage, several sheds and three motor homes, Ron Haralson, Los Angeles County Fire Department spokesman, said.

No one was seriously injured.

Water-dumping helicopters and planes helped firefighters control the fire.

About 450 homes were evacuated when it moved southeast toward city limits, Stanton Florea, U.S. Forest Service spokesman, said.

The cause of the fire is currently unknown.
