Hundreds of firefighters gained ground Sunday against a wildfire in Los Angeles County that forced at least 5,000 people to evacuate their homes, foreign media reports.

Since the inferno started Saturday, it has already scorched more than 500 acres.

The fire was raging on the slope of a canyon, "which makes it very dangerous for us to do a direct attack," Los Angeles County Deputy Fire Chief John Tripp said.

The wildfire broke out Saturday afternoon in the Calabasas area, a relatively affluent part of Los Angeles County that is home to a handful of celebrities, including Jessica Simpson and Toni Braxton, authorities said.
