Canyons Evacuated

Canyons evacuated due to California wildfire.

Authorities in Southern California say they're taking precautions by evacuating all three canyons north of a wildfire. Winds have been fanning the flames toward communities near Santa Clarita in Los Angeles County. Thousands have been forced to flee their homes. No injuries or structural damage are reported, though nearly 16-hundred homes have been evacuated. A fire official says 600 to 800 of those are in "imminent danger." More than a thousand firefighters have been battling the 42-hundred-acre fire. It was 35 percent contained by last night. The so-called Foothill Fire is one of several burning across more than 40-thousand acres in the state.
