Largest wildfire in Los Angeles history burns amid record-setting West Coast heat wave

California Gov. Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency in Los Angeles County on Sunday as the largest wildfire, in terms of acreage, in the city’s history continued to burn amid a record-breaking heat wave.

The La Tuna fire near Burbank had burned nearly 6,000 acres in a mountainous area north of downtown Los Angeles since Friday, destroying at least three homes and threatening a number of hillside neighborhoods. More than 1,000 firefighters were battling the blaze, which was only about 25% contained Sunday night. Smoke and flames forced the temporary closure of nearby Interstate 210.
