Massive Wildfire Burns 10,000 Acres, Forces Evacuations Near Los Angeles

A fast wildfire near Los Angeles has burned 10,000 acres. It forced 1,200 people to evacuate. Strong winds, expected until Monday, are making it worse.

The Post Fire started at 1:47 p.m. on Saturday near Gorman, California. In just 12 hours, it grew to 10,500 acres, according to CalFire. By Saturday evening, it was not contained.

Two commercial buildings are damaged. Two more are at risk.

The Hungry Valley area has been evacuated, and Pyramid Lake is closed.

Firefighters are setting up barriers and using aircraft. But, poor visibility is a problem.

Sunday’s weather will challenge them. Winds will be 10 to 15 miles per hour. It will be hotter with less humidity. This will make it harder to fight the fire, CalFire says.

Other areas in Arizona, Utah, and New Mexico also face high fire risks today.
