Fast moving fires pummeled through Burbank and La Crescenta area on Sunday morning. These wild fires had taken over 5,000 acres of land, and have destroyed three houses and damaged one.

Burbank and Glendale has teamed up with the LA county fire department to help stop this record breaking fire. Many people have been evacuated from their homes, in fear they might be in danger.

Hundreds of fire fighters have been battling these flames all through the night and into the following day. Two fire men have suffered heat exhaustion so far. “At one point the flames were moving in four different directions at once”

Over two hundred people were evacuated from their homes. A evacuation shelter was set up in Sunland, for the people with no where to go. Many people left the city of Burbank due to the horrible air quality. This is the biggest fire in LA history.

The La Tuna fire shut down the 210 freeway. The 210 freeway is no stranger to fires though, it seems as if this freeway is shut down every few years due to a fire.

“Los Angeles Fire Chief Ralph Terrazas said at 5 p.m. that the fire had spread to about 500 acres, and dozens of firefighters were working on the ground to halt the forward progress of the flames.”

This brush fire has came at maybe the worst time of the year. The fire started right in the middle of a heat wave with temperatures reaching as high as 106. CNN says this “California Gov. Jerry Brown issued a state of emergency for Los Angeles County on Sunday due to the ongoing La Tuna brush fire near Burbank.”
