Large Wildfire Rages in National Forest Near Los Angeles
A large wildfire is burning in California, and dry, windy conditions are hampering the efforts to control it. So far, the flames have destroyed about five and a half miles of forest near Los Angeles. FNC's Adam Housley reports that right now, the wildfire is not threatening any homes or campgrounds. However,
residents and visitors in the mountains have been evacuated so that fire trucks and crews can access the roads without interruption.
The Angeles National Forest where the fire is burning usually has about 12,000 visitors and there are at least nine aircrafts that are helping to fight the fire. Housley also reports that there have been wildfires burning in many other western states, including Utah, which has spent $16 million on combating fires so far.
