California fire 'out of control'

Date : 30th August 2009, Source : BBC Link to News Story



A wildfire in the mountains above Los Angeles is threatening some 12,000 buildings, California officials say. The fire, fuelled by hot weather during the past four days, was continuing to spread on Sunday. Evacuation orders cover about 10,000 homes, with state governor Arnold Schwarzenegger describing the fires as "still totally out of control". About 2,000 firefighters are trying to contain the blaze, which has burnt more than 55 sq miles (142 sq km) of forest.
