LA-Area Wildfire Burns Cars on Freeway, Destroys Homes


A fast-moving wildfire swept across a Southern California freeway in a mountain pass, torching nearly 4,000 acres of land and destroying 20 vehicles.

The fire started in the Cajon Pass along Interstate 15 at around 2:30 p.m. Friday. "I´ve never seen anything like this before," California Highway Patrol Officer Steve Carapia said.

22 engines, six air tankers, two water tenders, three helicopters and two airplaines were fighting the blaze. There were no reports of serious injuries.
