The Powerhouse Fire in the Angeles National Forest has burned nearly 30,000acres and destroyed six homes. Thousands of people have been evacuated and in some areas the fire has been fueled by brush that hasn't burned in 74 years. There are also other smaller fires burning throughout Los Angeles County.

For more, we've reached out to Angeles National Forest fire information officer Nathan Judy.
