Fires Blaze throughout Southern California

A brush fire that broke out just before 2 pm in the hills of Chatsworth, near

Rocky

Peak , had burned twelve hundred acres and was five percent contained as of 7 pm Wednesday. Fanned by high winds, the fire prompted a mandatory evacuation of homes in

Box

Canyon, as well as a trailer park located in the

Woolsey

Canyon portions of Chatsworth. The 118 freeway is also closed East and West at

Topanga

Canyon .  Some seven hundred fire personnel from

Los Angeles,

Ventura and the U.S. Department of Forestry are fighting the blaze on the ground and from the air.

 

 Two brush fires, one in

Lake

Elizabeth, burning between fifteen and twenty acres and a one acre blaze in

Acton were both knocked down by early evening. Neither fire threatened structures.
