The LaTuna Fire has led to the evacuation of hundreds of homes and the closure of a major freeway and many roads.
My family and I moved from Chicago to the Los Angeles area a little over a little year ago. We were almost immediately introduced to the awesome power of wildfires when the Sand Fire burned over 55,000 acres within view of our home. While not yet the size of the Sand Fire, the LaTuna Fire is still the largest in the Los Angeles city history. The fire has prompted the evacuation of hundreds of homes and closed many roads including the heavily travelled I-210 freeway.
Over a week of 100+ degree temperatures and erratic winds have hampered the efforts of the over 1,000 firefighters currently on scene battling this blaze. Check out the photos below and for the latest updates on this fire, follow the Los Angeles Fire Department on Twitter.
