Southern California firefighters are working in triple-digit heat to put out wildfires in mountains north of Los Angeles and near Big Sur on California’s scenic Central Coast.

Low humidity and wind has made the fires burn out of control threatening some 1,300 homes.

Belfast Telegraph reports:

The fire in northern Los Angeles County grew to more than eight and a half square miles, darkening skies with smoke that spread across the city and suburbs, reducing the sun to an orange disc at times.

The South Coast Air Quality Management District warned that air would reach unhealthy levels.

The fire erupted Friday afternoon in the Sand Canyon area near State Route 14 as the region was gripped by high heat and very low humidity.

About 300 homes were under mandatory or voluntary evacuations, but none had burned.

Hundreds of county and Angeles National Forest firefighters battled the blaze, aided by three dozen water-dropping helicopters and retardant-dropping planes.
