Huge wildfires burning in the mountains north of Los Angeles and near Big Sur on California’s Central Coast are posing a threat to more than 1,300 households and already caused forced evacuations of about 300 homes, according to local authorities.

A fire that erupted on Friday in the Sand Canyon area near Santa Clarita located north of Los Angeles has already incinerated some 4,450 hectares and has grown to more than eight and a half square miles. 

It already led to mandatory or voluntary evacuations of about 300 houses and continues to pose a threat to another 1000, although none of the affected homes burned.

It has nearly tripled in size in less than a day and was only 10 percent contained.
