DACC urges residents to not let their animals run loose.  Loose animals pose a safety hazard to first responders and can be dangerous for the animals involved as well. If possible, it is best to put your animals in a pasture area or leave them confined.


Animal evacuation locations:

  • Small animals: Castaic Animal Care Center: 31044 N. Charlie Canyon Road, Castaic, CA 91384
  • Large animals (such as livestock): Antelope Valley fairgrounds: 2551 W Avenue H Lancaster, CA 93536

The Powerhouse fire has grown to 29,584 acres, but is now 40 percent contained, according to Stephanie English, Los Angeles County Fire Department spokeswoman. 

It is currently moving north northeast, threatening approximately 100 buildings, including three commercial buildings, according to English. The fire is also still near several power lines.

Thus far, nine homes have been damaged and six destroyed, English said. The total cost for fire damage is estimated to be $3 million.

There are currently 2,185 personnel on the scene. Winds are blowing at 10-15 miles per hour to the southwest.

The firefighters had “a little bit of help because it was cooler,” English said.

Temperatures are expected to remain in the 80s today.

Evacuations and road closures remain the same, though Fire and Sheriff’s Department officials are evaluating those evacuations this morning as the fire is still expected to grow.
