The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department was working to evacuate residents near the area of Lopez Canyon and Kagel Canyon, according to LA County Fire. Four homes were destroyed and two others may have been damaged, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said at a roughly 9:30 a.m. briefing, but more structures could be seen burning as the fire continued its march. Mass evacuations were underway in the canyon areas.

ABC 7 reports that several homes on Moraga Drive are on fire.

So far the fire in Ventura County has burned 31,000 acres and has forced 27,000 thousand people to evacuate.

But by early afternoon, the eastern border of the evacuation area had been enlarged to the Haynes Canyon area. A second center is available to evacuees at the Sunland Senior Center at 8640 Fenwick Street.

One of many horse left behind as an early-morning major alarm brush fire that broke out in the Kagel Canyon area above Sylmar Tuesday.

Evacuation centers have been established at Delano Recreation Center, 15100 Erwin St., Van Nuys; Balboa RC, 17015 Burbank Blvd., Van Nuys; Sherman Oaks RC, 14201 Huston St., Sherman Oaks; and Westwood RC, 1350 Sepulveda Blvd., Westwood. And the Los Angeles Unified School District said the student bodies of Hubbard and Harding schools in Sylmar would be redirected to San Fernando High School at 11133 O'Melveny Ave.in San Fernando. All other Sylmar-area schools will remain open. Six fixed-wing aircraft and a number of helicopters were deployed to the scene, Garcetti said. Los Angeles Mission College's Main Campus at 13356 Eldridge Ave. and the East Campus at 12890 Harding St., both in Sylmar, were closed for the day, but there was no immediate word if classes would resume today. More than 600 firefighters battled the blaze amid strong Santa Ana winds, some gusting at 70 miles per hour.

Standing in front of 80-year-old mom's house and waiting it out, despite the evacuation, Marcus Pappas, who works in medical device sales, was on hand to organize mom's stuff, and stay on patrol, until the last minute.
