California’s Fast-Moving Lake Fire (21 photos)

Just north of Los Angeles, a wildfire near Lake Hughes grew to 10,000 acres within just a few hours yesterday. The rapidly growing blaze prompted the evacuation of hundreds of nearby homes as firefighters rushed to contain it. High winds, hot and dry conditions, and steep terrain have driven the fire’s growth in the Angeles National Forest.
