People who live in Lakeview Terrace were awakened around 3 a.m. Many said that when they came outside and saw how close the flames were to their homes, they immediately prepared to evacuate.
There are many ranches in the area, with lots of horses and other animals. Some residents had difficulty getting their animals out safely because of tight roads and fire danger.
"We did find a way to go up, and the flames were right to the road and we had to turn our trailers around," said horse owner Tricia Hamilton.
Some people walked or rolled their animals to safer spots.
"We actually had a lot of volunteers who brought trucks, so we didn't have to do that. That was really wonderful to have," said horse owner Debbie Colomb. "But we still have to get the horses out of their stalls, and they get very excited because of all the flames and smoke and things like that."
Horses and other pets were being evacuated to the Hansen Dam Recreation Center. People were evacuated to San Fernando High School.
Santa Ana winds were blowing between 10 and 15 mph, but firefighters were aided by cool temperatures overnight. Highs were expected to be in the 70s on Sunday, but bumping up into the 80s and low 90s on Monday and Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
