A pair of brush fires erupted in Los Angeles on Sunday, with ground crews receiving support from water-dropping aircraft as they continue to battle the blaze.
One fire is located near large homes in close proximity to Mandeville Canyon. The blaze north of Brentwood has produced smoke that is visible for miles.
Roughly four acres of dry brush has been burned in the fire, as officials warn residents to prepare for evacuation.
Northeast in the Lake View Terrace neighborhood, a 15-acre fire has impacted homes in the foothills of Angeles National Forest.
Rugged terrain and high temperatures are two factors crews are dealing with, as noted by city fire spokeswoman Margaret Stewart
