So far only 5% of the rampaging fire was contained. The fire also threaten Mount Wilson, home to at least 20 television transmission towers, radio and cell phone antennas, and the century-old Mount Wilson Observatory. It also houses two giant telescopes and several multimillion-dollar university programs in its role as both a landmark for its historic discoveries and a thriving modern center for astronomy. If the flames hit the mountain, cell phone service and TV and radio transmissions would be disrupted, but the extent was unclear.
So far 53 homes were destroyed including some forest cabins. Around 2,000 families were also evacuated in the apparent increasing threat of the greatest fire yet to hit Los Angeles.
Here are some more footage from the scene:
