LA WildFire Expanded Over to 22,242 Acres, Destroying At Least 6 Structures and Over 1,000 Homes


Authorities Sunday said at least six structures have been destroyed and more than 1,000 homes remain threatened as the Powerhouse Fire expanded in size to 22,242 acres. The US Forest Service on Sunday evening downgraded the stubborn fire from 25,000 acres. The fast-moving brush fire crossed Lake Hughes Road to the northwest forcing 1,000 people out of their homes about 9 p.m. Saturday.

Firefighters working in darkness doubled containment of a massive wildfire north of Los Angeles to 40 percent overnight, as cool, moist air moved in Monday to replace torrid weather.

In less than an hour, the fire had pushed north several miles across the desert. Jackrabbits could be seen trying to outpace the flames.

The fire, which was 20 percent contained, was fueled in part by chaparral that was “extremely old and dry” and hadn’t burned since 1929, U.S. Forest Service Incident Commander Norm Walker said Sunday at a news conference.
