29 horses burn to death at ranch destroyed by Creek Fire

Two major fires raged in Southern California Tuesday, including the Creek Fire near Sylmar.

The fire, which has scorched 12,605 acres, broke out at 3:42 a.m. Tuesday in the area of Gold Creek and Little Tujunga roads in the Kagel Canyon area. Only 5 percent of the flames have been contained so far, according to fire officials, KABC reported.

The drones primarily will be used to conduct property assessment as the LAFD surveys damage caused by the Creek Fire near Sylmar and the Skirball Fire in Bel Air and the Sepulveda Pass. All other Sylmar-area schools will remain open.

Los Angeles Fire Department Chief Ralph Terrazas said he expects to find more homes destroyed when the smoke from the fire clears, according to the Los Angeles Times.

At least 30 homes were destroyed, about 20 of them in the Little Tujunga, Kagel Canyon and Lopez Canyon areas.

"At this time, the fire has grown to over 4,000 acres and still growing, as you can see, with the wind gusts now facing us here, approximately a couple of miles away from the fire", Richardson said. But the blaze did not grow overnight Wednesday, according to CalFire. Some fire officials said they are battling "hurricane-force" winds. The Santa Ana winds in California this week were described as the season's "strongest and longest", spreading fires rapidly and making firefighting conditions even more hard. Padilla said she and her family were able to get out of her home just in time but were not able to take their horses with them as they had to evacuate immediately when they were awakened Tuesday morning.

Evacuations were also issued for Arroyo Street north of the 210 Freeway and areas of Maclay, Pocoima Wash west of Sayre Street and Eldridge, Los Angeles Fire Department spokeswoman Margaret Stewart stated in an update.

"Better safe than sorry", Barger said. The fire affected a number of schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District, prompting the closures of 14 campuses in the fire area today.
