Hundreds of Californians have been forced to evacuate their homes as firefighters battle to contain a fast-burning wildfire.
Authorities say the fire in the Sand Canyon near Santa Clarita prompted the evacuation of about 100 homes. It was reported shortly before noon on Saturday and continued to burn through the night, charring more than two thousand acres.
About 750 firefighters are battling the fire as high temperatures and overgrown vegetation fuel the fast moving brush fire. So far no structural damage or injuries have been reported.
The Sand Canyon blaze was one of dozens of wildfires across California.
