RANCHO CUCAMONGA, San Bernardino C0unty (AP) — A wildfire that forced the evacuation of at least 1,100 homes grew to 800 acres on Wednesday, fanned by gusty Santa Ana winds that pushed it through foothills east of Los Angeles.
Although no homes were in immediate danger, the homes were under mandatory evacuation and at least seven homes were closed because of smoke from the blaze at the base of the San Bernardino Mountains.
More than 500 firefighters battled the flames just above residential developments in Rancho Cucamonga, a city of 165,000 people.
