Brush fires fed by hot, dry conditions raced through the suburban hills north of Los Angeles on Saturday evening, threatening homes and prompting mandatory evacuations.
Fire crews fought at least two blazes separated by only a few miles in West Hills and Calabasas, two wealthy suburbs in the San Fernando Valley. Three water-dropping helicopters worked to put out the blazes, KNBC reported.
One of the fires led to mandatory evacuations in neighborhoods of Calabasas, according to fire officials.
Temperatures crept into the upper 90s on Saturday in the area, a third consecutive day of high heat that forecasters expected to break Sunday.
