Three Brush Fires Erupt Near Los Angeles

Firefighters are battling small but growing brush fires in rural northern Los Angeles County hill country.

Two fast-moving fires erupted Thursday afternoon in rolling grasslands near State Route 14, while another burned in the high-desert Antelope Valley. A camp for inmate firefighters is being evacuated.

Los Angeles County Fire Department Inspector Matt Levesque says the largest is 30 acres.

The Antelope Valley blaze burned west of the high-desert city of Lancaster.

To the north in Kern County, weather has helped firefighters working to contain fires that burned homes earlier this week near Tehachapi on the western edge of the Mojave Desert and in Sequoia National Forest.
